Mayor John Biggs fulfils another election pledge

37Tower Hamlets Mayor, John Biggs, held his first Mayoral Assembly at Swanlea School on January 21.
More than 80 residents, business owners and voluntary sector partners attended to feedback ideas and concerns about the Whitechapel Vision; work being done to create jobs for local people; support for businesses and local anti-social behaviour issues. Discussion was particularly lively around affordable housing and community safety.
Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, said: “I promised to build in transparency and accountability to my engagement with residents; the Assembly was a new and important step towards delivering this promise.
“I am committed to engaging with residents, key partners and improving services to ensure that Tower Hamlets is a great place to live.”
Cllr Sirajul Islam, deputy mayor and cabinet member for Housing chaired the assembly.
The mayor took many questions from the floor during the meeting and due to time constraints, promised to provide full feedback on all questions on the council’s website.
