(London Borough of Tower Hamlets)
The London Borough of Tower Hamlets has one of the highest housing targets in London, with limited land available for new development resulting in high density residential development, frequently tall buildings. However, at present there is limited consensus about the implications of increasing density. To better understand, the borough conducted one of the largest and most comprehensive pieces of research into the lives of residents living in high density and tall buildings. This is used to develop and evidence design guidelines to ensure that future development supports good quality of life for all residents living and working in these buildings.
