Major Works – Pelter Street (Evens) and Baroness Road

Tower Hamlets Homes has commissioned major works on the Pelter Street (evens) and Baroness Road blocks. The contractor is yet to be announced.

We recommend that all residents of Pelter Street (evens) and Baroness 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.
