Major Works – Old Market Sq, Pelter St, Hackney Rd

Tower Hamlets Homes has commissioned major works on the Old Market Square, Georgina Gardens, Pelter Street (odds) and Hackey Road blocks. The building work has planning permission and the construction contract has been awarded to Mulalley (the construction company).

We recommend that all residents of Old Market Square, Pelter Street (odds) and Hackney Road blocks join the Newling North Estate email group to keep up to date. Email to request to join.

We still have room on the steering committee for residents to join. We have most blocks represented but would particularly welcome representatives from the following blocks: 1-12 Baroness Road, Georgina Gardens and 18-46 Pelter Street and Council tenants from all blocks who are currently underrepresented.
