Growth and economic development consultation

The Tower Hamlets Growth and Economic Development Plan 2018-2023 aims to build an economy that works for local people and ensure that everyone can benefit from the borough’s success.  The council’s vision is to create a Tower Hamlets that delivers sustainable and inclusive economic growth enabling all of our residents and businesses to prosper. We have identified three main priorities that we believe will deliver positive outcomes.
  • Preparing our young people for success. Making the transition from education to employment work better for our young people.
  • Helping our working age residents thrive. Ensure all working age residents in the borough get the best possible outcomes in terms of their jobs and careers. 
  • Creating the conditions for business growth. Supporting our existing businesses in the borough to thrive and to stay in Tower Hamlets as they grow, and identify ways in which we can attract a diverse business base.
The council cannot deliver these priorities alone. We want your views but beyond that, with this consultation we are interested in specific things that you, as businesses, could do to help realise our ambitions.

Your answers will inform the final version of our Growth and Economic Development Plan. Would you be happy to be contacted about your answers? *
