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.

Neighbourhood Planning Area

The application to designate a neighbourhood planning area for Limehouse was approved by the mayor in cabinet on 1 December 2015.

Neighbourhood forum

The Limehouse Neighbourhood Forum was designated by the Mayor in Cabinet on 1 December 2015 (at the same time as designating the neighbourhood area), and expired on 1 December 2020. 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.  

In November 2020, the Limehouse Community Forum submitted an application to be re-designated as the neighbourhood planning forum for the Limehouse neighbourhood area. A consultation was held on this application between 3 December 2020 and 27 January 2021. On 25 February 2021, the Limehouse Forum notified the Council that they were withdrawing the application.
