Shape Forest Gate

On 26 June the first meeting for Shape Forest Gate took place with the Mayor, Ward Councillors, over 100 local businesses and residents. The meeting was the start of a conversation with residents and businesses on ways to improve Forest Gate and in particular the high street. We remain committed to collaborating with the local community and would like the dialogue to continue to help Shape Forest Gate.

We want to hear from you 

At the meeting it was suggested that working groups should be established to focus on specific topics that are of particular interest to the local community.  This will be a chance for community to be tell us and each other what the priorities should be for the high street and also an opportunity to suggest ideas that could be further developed and implemented in the future.
This webpage will be updated with any relevant information relating to the high street and the working groups. You can also sign up to our newsletter to keep updated on the project.

Some suggestions that were made were: 
  • Affordable Workspace
  • Place Making and Public Realm 
  • High Street Management (parking, deliveries, waste, policing etc.)
We experienced some technical difficulties with the email address that was advertised. To suggest other working groups, resubmit or register your interest to be on a working group please email your name, address and contact phone number by Friday 25 October to​​
