December 2018

The Community Governance Review Petition calling for the creation of a town council in Spitalfields was submitted on the 23rd July 2018. It contained 324 valid petitioners. Tower Hamlets has now begun a statutory twelve-month Community Governance Review which will end in July 2019.

The Neighbourhood Forum welcomes the Community Governance Review currently taking place and will respect the recommendations of that review - whatever they are. The decision on community governance arrangements is now in the hands of local people.
