An exhibition will unveil detailed plans for developing Royal Albert Dock and give Newham residents the chance to have their say.
They will go on display at Compressor House, Royal Docks, Dockside Road, Silvertown for three days from February 6.
Developer ABP’s vision is to create a vibrant hub for people to work and live and a new gateway to Europe for businesses from Asia. The proposals will also create up to 20,000 new jobs, a significant number of which will be available to local people.
For the first time, local people will be able to enjoy around 1km of waterfront, along with three new public squares, a dockside promenade and green links through the site.
Chairman of ABP, Xu Weiping, said: “These proposals are incredibly exciting and I am very proud that my company ABP is driving them forward. We look forward to meeting local people at the event and hearing their feedback on our plans.”
