Water City

Challenge There is a seven-mile network of rivers, canals and docks in East  London’s Lower Lea Valley. This Water City comprises parts of Newham, Hackney,  Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Greenwich. From the air the vast tracts of water  and water-side spaces that make up Water City are visible, but this vista – and with it  the opportunities it offers - has largely become hidden since the economic and  physical decline of the docks.

The 2012 London Olympics has raised Water City’s profile worldwide but despite  massive investment recently, evidence of “trickle down” is limited. In Tower Hamlets  for example, communities literally overshadowed by Canary Wharf remain some of  the most disadvantaged in the UK. Life expectancy is 10 years less in Stratford than it  is only ten stations away along the Jubilee Line in Westminster. And those that work  there don’t live there. Only 20% of the jobs are held by residents.

Solutions AMP has helped form Water City CIC which believes in steering East  London away from dependency and altruism.  We encourage and develop a more  active, designed and planned approach towards regeneration. East London is – and  always has been – a focus of industry, innovation, scientific discovery and  entrepreneurial enterprise. Water City CIC is connecting a group of commercial  partners to build on this focus.
