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.
Cllr Sarah Ruiz, who represents Custom House, said: "This is a brilliant opportunity for the people of Custom House to help shape their future environment."
Four consultations are set to take place, including two at Canning Town library on Tuesday, September 10 at 10am and Wednesday, September 18 at 12pm.
