Custom House Liveable Neighbourhood

In autumn 2018, Newham Council submitted a bid to Transport for London (TfL) for a Liveable Neighbourhood proposal for the Custom House area. Our bid was successful and Newham Council was awarded £135,000 to look at how we can improve walking and cycling routes, and the general street environment in the area. This initial seed funding will allow us to identify local priorities and opportunities for improvements.  We will then need to submit a further bid to TfL later on this year to secure additional funding to deliver any improvement projects.

​What is a Liveable Neighbourhood?

The Liveable Neighbourhoods programme aims to reduce car trips and improve neighbourhoods for walking, cycling and public transport. Projects can deliver a range of interventions to create healthy and active streets. These may include improving cycling networks, redesigning junctions, upgrading crossings and creating more attractive walking routes.
For more information visit the TfL Liveable Neighbhourhood page

What area does the Custom House Liveable Neighbourhood cover? 

The Custom House Liveable Neighbourhood includes the area bounded by Royal Victoria Road, Prince Regent Lane, Barking Road and Silvertown Way.

What are the proposals for the Custom House Liveable Neighbhourhood?

We will be engaging with local residents, businesses, schools and community groups to better understand the key issues and to listen to your ideas and views to help shape outline proposals for the Custom House Liveable Neighbhourhood.

Towards the end of the year, we will prepare a report to document our findings from the community engagement process and to provide an overview of our outline proposals. This report will be presented to TfL so that we can seek further funding to implement our proposals.

Share your views

We would like to find out what the key local issues are, and what you think we could do to encourage people to walk and cycle more and to use public transport. Please share your views through our interactive map by Tuesday 8 October 2019.
Come along to one of our drop-in sessions to speak to a member of our team.
