Newham Council wants to hear from residents and businesses of Green Street to help shape the future of the area.
Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz, alongside councillors for Boleyn, Green Street East and Green Street West wards, are inviting the community to submit their ideas to improve what the high street has to offer.
The council wants to involve as many residents as possible during the process and are asking:
- How would you like Green Street to look like in the future?
- What would you do to improve the high street?
- How could we make the market better?
Over the next six weeks, until June 21, the Council will be engaging with the community to understand their aspirations for the high street. Residents and businesses will receive freepost postcards so they can provide their views. These can be returned through the post free of charge or placed into the drop box at Green Street Library.
Mayor Fiaz said: “I want people at the heart of everything we do and this type of conversation reflects my administration’s intention and commitment to do just that.
“I want the best for the borough that I grew up in. I remember vividly coming to Queen’s Market and the surrounding area to shop with my mother, and we must hold on to that amazing heritage. I want to ensure Green Street is a thriving place to shop, live and visit for future generations to come.”
A report showing the ideas collected will be presented to the Green Street community in the summer. This will include a list of possible short, medium and long-term projects with the aim of revitalising Green Street. Some of these will be Council projects, with others being led by residents and businesses.
