What's happening in Limehouse?
Did you know that Limehouse ward has the highest levels of Nitrogen Dioxide in Tower Hamlets? Commercial Road, the Limehouse Link and the Rotherhithe Tunnel are all contributing to the illegal pollution levels in our neighbourhood. Share your views at Limehouse Lungs here:

The next meeting of the LCF will be discussing some important issues:
WHO IS THE LIMEHOUSE COMMUNITY FORUM (LCF)?
The LCF was established in the Spring of 2005 to address three concerns that residents had; crime, poor street lighting and CCTV along Narrow Street. The founding members of the forum were representatives of some of our local housing estates and residential blocks. Our constitution was agreed in July 2005 and membership was redefined and opened to any "development" - an expansion which would grant admission to businesses, institutions and other local bodies.
Since that time the forum has successfully worked to increase membership and has reached out to form partnerships with a wide range of associated organisations and groups. This has allowed our Limehouse community to have a rather loud voice within and beyond our local authority. Activities have included expanding the local heath facilities, preserving neighbourhood youth services, mediating disputes, growing local amenities such as the Basin Market & PopUp Cinema and improving the quality of life in Limehouse.
In 2012 the LCF successfully lobbied the Boundary Commission to alter the size of our ward, matching those as defined in the LCF constitution. In 2013, the LCF applied to become a Neighbourhood Planning Forum and has now been so designated. The Limehouse Neighbourhood Planning Forum has the responsibility to produce a local plan which will have the strength of planning law, within our community
The LCF reaches out and interacts with our wider community of residents and businesses by hosting public events. Each year the LCF funds and organises a History Night, where we can all learn about our past and help shape our future. The formal adoption of our constitute is commemorated on the first Sunday in July with what is one of the premier local festivals: LIMEfest.
Please explore our website and have a look at what we do. Come to one of our meetings where you can identify local issues, ask questions and suggest answers. The value of a community is based upon our choosing to take part in that community. Limehouse matters. We can all add value making things better for ourselves and our neighbours.
