How can Custom House be a healthier and safer place to live?

That's the question posed by Newham Council as it looks for ways to make the area better for walking and cycling, and improve the general street environment.

A £135,000 fund has already been secured from Transport for London's Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme to make the changes.
