Commissioned by Redbridge Council.
Ilford for you, for me, for all.
Our town has never been one to stand still. But in times of great changes – and great opportunities – you may be wondering what are the council’s plans and priorities for Ilford? What will we seek to preserve and what will we promote? What do we think the future of Ilford looks like?
Accompanied by a collection of snapshots of the people of our town, here are our thoughts, opinions, ambitions for Ilford. Here are our promises for an Ilford for all.
We are reinventing ourselves. Thousands of new homes and residents mean new shops, services, restaurants and amenities – this is the moment for us all to define the future of Ilford.
Known as where the East End came to shop and play, it is time for Ilford to once again be the heart of a modern east London.
Many small and creative businesses are being priced out of central London. Enter Ilford.
We will open up vacant buildings. We will provide the spaces for businesses to start up, grow up, and thrive. We will also train local people to ensure they share in Ilford’s growth. We will make Ilford a springboard for success.
We believe you get great returns when you invest in people. So we think it’s time to turn the area around our historic Town Hall into a cultural quarter worthy of our residents, present and future.
We will revitalise and transform our leisure and cultural offer. We will create new educational spaces and a new home for our public services.
