Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

East Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Planning Area

A decision to modify the East Shoreditch Neighbourhood Area was approved by the Mayor in Cabinet on 22 May 2019.

This modification removes the part of the Neighbourhood Area which was within the London Borough of Hackney, and means that the Neighbourhood Area is now entirely located within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The original neighbourhood area had been approved on 5 February 2014.

Neighbourhood forum

The East Shoreditch Neighbourhood Forum was designated by the Mayor in Cabinet on 5 February 2014, and expired on 5 February 2019. This is because national legislation states that Neighbourhood Forum designations expire after five years. The Neighbourhood Area designation is unaffected by the expiry of the Forum.
