Future Shoreditch area action plan

We’ve prepared an area action plan for Shoreditch, called Future Shoreditch. The plan sets out a vision for what Shoreditch will look like in 2034 and the planning policies to guide and manage future development and investment in the area. Once adopted, it will be an important document when making planning decisions in Shoreditch.

Draft area action plan

Thank you to everyone who took part in our consultation on the Future Shoreditch draft area action plan which ran from 29 April to 21 June 2019.

Over the past two years, through engagement and consultation with residents, businesses, and stakeholders, we have developed a draft Plan that draws on what we’ve heard are the key issues and opportunities and puts forward policies and guidance to address these.

The draft plan aims to shape growth in the area and spread the benefits of development to deliver well-designed and inclusive public spaces, more genuinely affordable homes and workspaces, improved streets and air quality, new high quality developments that respect the rich heritage and character of Shoreditch, and more work and training opportunities for local people.

What happens next?

We are currently analysing all feedback received on the draft Plan. Your comments will help shape the final draft plan (Proposed Submission Version) which will be consulted on later in the year.
