Below are maps showing the boundaries of the Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Area and a model of the area produced by ‘What If’ (architects). The Area was designated by the London Legacy Development Corporation in 2015.
The Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Area
The Neighbourhood Forum area (the neighbourhood area) is situated on the border of the Queen Elizabeth Park. It has a strong and supportive community.
It comprises diverse residents of different religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. It is a community built on strong relationships; some over generations where adults and children feel safe and secure.
It has a mix of homes including older local authority homes, ex local authority homes and newer homes all of which are occupied by tenants, leaseholders and freeholders. There is also a mix of property sizes.
There is a wealth of community assets; school, colleges, community centres, play areas and a doctor’s surgery being well used by all residents.
There are existing concentrations of businesses here in construction, maintenance and refurbishment as well as the Building Crafts College and artists’ studios. There are also excellent training facilities in the Building Crafts College and the Docklands Centre.
