Dear Stakeholder,

 

Shape Newham is Newham Council’s programme of public art and public realm improvement projects. These projects take place at sites selected by local communities and are co-designed with groups of residents.

 

You may recall the Shape Newham consultation in Summer 2020 where there was an opportunity to comment on the concept designs for a number of projects that were to be located on the public highway. Following this consultation, and the receipt of comments from consultees, the schemes have been revised, the technical design work has been completed and they have been costed to enable value engineering re-design to take place so that a final designs are possible to implement within budgets.

 

The schemes are now being handed over to the highways department to install throughout 2022 and as such I wanted to provide you with the final versions of the designs so you are aware of exactly what is planned for installation. The design drawings and road safety assessments can be downloaded at https://we.tl/t-kRHm3exVL7.

 

A brief description of each project, how it has been updated following consultation last year and likely installation dates can be found in the table below:
