London Borough of Newham
Nowhere else in the UK is undergoing transformation on the scale of Newham…
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have put the London Borough of Newham in the international spotlight and are driving change at an unprecedented pace. With an abundance of land for development, world-class transport and digital infrastructure, and a young, energetic and increasingly skilled workforce, the borough is ideally placed to accommodate much of London’s growth in the 21st century. Unmatched investment in the borough’s Arc of Opportunity, encompassing the Olympic Park, Stratford, Canning Town, and Custom House, and the wholesale redevelopment of the new Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, reflect Newham’s status as London’s regeneration priority for the next 25 years. By 2025 it is envisaged that a minimum of £22 billion will have been invested in the area, creating over 35,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs. As development and investment in the UK’s capital moves steadily eastwards, Newham is set to become a new heart for London. This is your chance to be a part of it.
