Your Romford, your say!

Havering Council has begun a consultation on the future of the Romford Town Centre and surrounding areas.

The first event was held on Friday 25th January and will run all the way through until June, and there will be plenty of ways for you to get involved.

The consultation will feed into the development of the Romford Town Centre Masterplan, which will guide future development in the Romford Town Centre.

You can have your say online, and tell the Council what you would like to see changed or improved in Romford

Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said:

“The Masterplan engagement events are a real chance for the Council to understand local people’s ideas, aspirations and priorities for Romford Town Centre in the future.

“Whether it’s the historic market or our variety of shopping centres, our job is to protect what we love about Romford and look at ways to improve it. 

"We need to make sure that the homes built in the future are genuinely affordable so our sons and daughters can afford to live here. We want to make sure that any new developments bring the shops, restaurants and green spaces that people want, along with the schools, health centres and transport infrastructure that we need.

“This is not just about the future or a big splash in ten years’ time – we are continually investing in all our town centres.

“Across the borough, with our partners, we are investing more than £3bn to create new jobs, homes and bring other improvements to our neighbourhoods. Havering is already a great place to live, work and visit - but with the help of our residents and businesses we want to make it even better.”
