The Original Boundary was designated by Tower Hamlets Council in February 2017.
During the six weeks of consultation over the proposed neighbourhood plan in March-April 2021, it was pointed out that several small pieces of land in the existing plan area bordering the A12 Blackwall Tunnel road are inside the boundary of the London Legacy Development Corporation area, a neighbouring planning authority. These pieces of land cannot, therefore, be included in the Roman Road Bow neighbourhood plan area.
This means a strip of land along the edge of the A12 within the proposed site for housing behind Wendon Street, (page 34 of the draft plan), has to be excluded from the proposed site and neighbourhood plan.
In addition, the proposed designated local green space between the A12 and Wick Lane south of Tredegar Road (page 51 of the draft plan) has to be excluded from the draft plan.
The other land removed from the Neighbourhood Plan Area, for which there are no proposals in the neighbourhood plan, are i) he area between Payne Road, the A12, and the A11 (McDonald’s drive-through site), and ii) a small strip of land between the A12 and the back of housing plots on Cadogan Terrace.
To resolve this issue, the Council cabinet approved an amended neighbourhood plan boundary at its meeting on 30th June 2021. A map showing the new boundary is shown below.
The neighbourhood area consists of all of Bow West and Bow Eastwards except for Victoria Park and the parts that are included in the LLDC planning area. The boundary is the same as that which was designated in 2017, except for the correction of the exact position of the boundary between Tower Hamlets and the LLDC.
