Tower Hamlets is an exciting and fast changing location which includes the Tower of London World Heritage Site, Whitechapel, Brick Lane, Canary Wharf and the Olympic legacy. It’s one of London’s most diverse boroughs and has one of the highest targets for new homes and jobs in the capital, plus numerous complex and strategic applications. There are over fifty conservation areas, hundreds of listed buildings and an extensive river frontage including Tower Bridge.
