Boost for business & young people in Bromley-by-Bow


It’s not just diggers, cranes and builders who’ve been busy transforming Stroudley Walk, in Bromley-by-Bow, this year.

Alongside the construction of much needed new homes, shops and green space, the local community are benefiting from new opportunities too.

Delivered in partnership with Muse, our development at Stroudley Walk is focused on creating a safe, thriving and vibrant neighbourhood for the community, during and after construction.

Supporting local business

Local businesses have been championed since the demolition began in 2022.

The existing shops will remain open throughout the construction and we’ve been working with traders to make sure their businesses thrive.

An influx of new trade from the many people working on the construction site has been warmly welcomed by business owners.

Giant photos of each local trader and the name of their business feature prominently on the site’s hoardings; new, free advertising space visible to everyone passing by.

Local young people

Local nursery children are enjoying new play equipment, thanks to contractor, McAleer & Rushe.  A new sandpit was fitted this summer at nearby Children’s House Nursery School, on Bruce Road.

With local charity, Bow Arts,  this summer Muse led an empowerment workshop for pupils from St Agnes Primary School, paying homage to Stroudley Walk’s strong links to the women’s suffrage movement.

Young people’s ideas collected at the workshop are now displayed on the site hoardings. Plans to incorporate the school pupils’ artwork permanently within the new public areas are now in development.

Local and London-wide support

We shared how local people are benefitting from the construction with Bow Bridge Estate Board residents and the Deputy Mayor for London, Tom Copley, this autumn.

Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Maium Talukdar, Councillor Abdul Mannan and Councillor Saif Uddin Khaled also visited the Stroudley Walk site in November.

Located between Bruce Road and Bromley High Street, Stroudley Walk will provide the local community with 274 new homes. 52% of the development will be affordable housing by habitable room. It will include 82 homes available for London Affordable Rent and 33 for shared ownership. The development is expected to complete in 2025.
