A consultation has launched on a range of improvement measures including new homes, business floor space, a local centre and associated open space and infrastructure.

The redevelopment of this site will provide links into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford High Street and the Sugar House Lane site, as well as Bromley-by-Bow to the south-east.

The former industrial site is dominated by the Pudding Mill DLR station and the soon-to-be-complete Crossrail portal, although it has long been identified for redevelopment into a mixed use community with substantial amounts of new employment.

Large parts of the site are vacant, but the aim is to develop across the whole of the area, including Marshgate Lane, Pudding Mill Lane, Barbers Road, Cook’s Road, East West Street and the Waterways.

Plans include a bridge across Bow Back River at Marshgate Lane, suitable for bus and cycle links across the High Street to Sugar House Lane, the widening of Cook’s Road bridge to allow for pedestrians and heavy goods vehicles and improvements to the underpass below railway lines to access Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Bridgewater Road.

Public drop-in sessions will be held at the House Mill, in Three Mills on Thursday and at Bromley-by-Bow Centre on November 24 – both at 5.30pm until 8pm. The consultation closes on Monday, December 12.
