HAVE YOUR SAY
CALLING OUT PARENTS
PLEASE HELP US WORK OUT HOW TO KEEP SUSTAINABLE CHILDCARE IN THE BOROUGH
Account3 has received a small amount of funding from the Enterprise Development Fund to do a feasibility study on if and how we could make our childcare service(s) more sustainable. We are a local not for profit women’s organisation based in Bethnal Green and have been running a range of services for women since 1991. We provide training including ESOL, welfare, legal and debt advice alongside a 50-place nursery and support for children/families impacted by Autism and other developmental neurodiversity issues.
As part of our feasibility study work we are asking various partners (parents, other childcare providers and local authority staff) for their views on how they see childcare in the borough and what, if any, changes they would like to see made to childcare to make it more affordable and attractive to parents and more sustainable for providers.

HELP CITY HALL CELEBRATE BLACK CULTURE
Share your ideas to celebrate Black culture and creativity in London
In his 2021 Manifesto, the Mayor listed ‘celebrating our city’s rich diversity’ as one of his top commitments. He also set out his plans to develop a new event to celebrate Black culture in London. This new event will take place annually in Trafalgar Square from September 2023. The event aims to give a platform to new and established artists, showcase the diversity within London’s Black communities and offer the audience a chance to experience new perspectives.

Tower Hamlets has the fastest population growth and the highest population density in the country. The borough has attracted people from all backgrounds.

RUSHMEAD - NEW COUNCIL HOMES
The Mayor is committed to making Tower Hamlets a place where people can live in high quality and affordable homes. The Council will work with developers and Housing Associations to build 4,000 social homes for rent, with a focus on 3-4 bedroom homes and this site has been identified with the potential to deliver nine new affordable homes for rent.
The site comprises the existing two-storey shop, which serves the surrounding community north of Bethnal Green Road. The site has a previous planning consent for five family houses. The current proposals increase the number of large family units from the previous consent, while ensuring the development fits within the existing context. The homes will be well designed, constructed to current modern space standards, energy efficient and will contribute positively to identified housing need.
