Shape Newham

Shape Newham was launched by Newham Council in 2019 to enhance public spaces across the borough. Through a series of public assemblies and resident-led design committees, communities have worked together with designers and the Council to create design proposals for 18 projects across the borough. The proposals include permanent artistic installations, creative public realm enhancements and murals co-designed with groups of Newham’s young people.  

Shape Newham delivers on a commitment from the Council to invest in all parts of Newham (including places outside of major regeneration areas). The 18 Shape Newham projects will be located in Beckton, East Ham, Forest Gate, Green Street, Little Ilford, Manor Park and Maryland (a neighbourhood in the Stratford and New Town Ward) and Plaistow.
