    I am shocked to hear about the problems regarding refuse collection in St Katharine's and Wapping and across the borough. Residents are being let down by the Council's mismanagement of vital frontline services such as regular and reliable bin collections.

    On Tuesday 13 November, developers of UK Real Estate Ltd. and Latitude Architects held a public exhibition at the Wapping Hydraulic Pumping Station, formerly known as the Wapping Project on Wapping Wall. Over the past years, the site has not been in use, and there are now proposals to restore, convert and open the building up for local business and residents. The proposals include creating space for offices, a restaurant, a courtyard, a small brewery and the erection of a new three-story building within the existing premises. Developers aim to submit the planning application to Tower Hamlets Council in Winter of 2018/19 with the intention of completing the redevelopment by 2021.
