A call out to Forest Gate residents to get involved in a great new project to improve our high streets. Starting with Forest Gate, Green Street, Manor Park and Little Ilford, this is a collaborative project to identify what residents want to prioritise, and to make our high streets better. During lockdown and beyond we have all come to rely even more on our local small businesses, particularly when we could see the strains they were under, and the efforts they make to keep us safe. This project, which works alongside other complementary projects like Shape Newham, is a way of getting more involved with your local area, by just giving your views about what is important to you.
The text below is from the first Newham High Streets newsletter:
We are getting in touch with you in relation to the newly launched Newham High Streets initiative. The aim of this programme is to work in phases to support high streets, focusing on the happiness and wellbeing of residents and businesses and ensure they have what they need to deal with the challenges of recession and recovery. The first phase of the programme includes the areas of Green Street, Forest Gate, Manor Park, and Little Ilford.
To join the discussion, sign up on the Newham Co-Create platform and share your experiences and aspirations for your high street.
On the platform, you will be able to follow the progress of the programme, receive key updates, and most importantly contribute to its development. At this stage, you can contribute to a survey until October 25th.
