Partners

Introduction: 

High Street 2012 is being delivered by a number of project partners and organisations from both the public and private sectors have been involved in various initiatives. The core project partners, who give the project its strategic direction and provide funding, as well as appointing architects, contractors and other collaborators to deliver project activities are listed below.

Based in the heart of London's east end, Tower Hamlets Council is run by a directly elected Mayor whose priorities are to reduce overcrowding, improve education, get local people into work, help residents feel safer and make the borough's streets cleaner. Embracing the borough's diversity and rich cultural heritage, the Council is maximising the benefits that the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring to residents and businesses.

Transport for London (TfL) is the Highway Authority for the A11 Whitechapel Road and is responsible for managing, maintaining and improving this route for all road users. Our job is to make the safest and most appropriate use of London's busiest roads. 

Design for London works on behalf of the Mayor of London as an urban design resource for the capital. The main focus of our work is supporting boroughs, local stakeholders and project delivery partners to shape a better city.

Everywhere we look, history surrounds us. English Heritage champions London's unique and rich legacy of historic places and advises the government and others to help today’s generations get the best out of our heritage whilst striving to ensure that it is protected for the future.

The London Borough of Newham is currently one of the largest regeneration sites in Europe. At the heart of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Newham already has several major developments underway, with some £22 billion being invested locally.

London Thames Gateway Development Corporation (LTGDC) is the Government’s lead regeneration agency for east London.

Using money raised through the National Lottery, the Heritage Lottery Fund gives grants to sustain and transform our heritage. From museums, parks and historic places to archaeology, natural environment and cultural traditions we invest in every part of our diverse heritage.

The Mayor is at the heart of changing London for the better. His work includes making it easier for people to move in and around the city, transforming open spaces into cleaner, calmer, greener places, tackling housing and health inequalities, giving young Londoners a better start in life, championing our city at home and abroad, and more.
