Summary of changes

Throughout the engagement period for the Leyton Town Centre scheme we have worked with residents and businesses in the area to understand better what they think of Leyton Town Centre and the surrounding area, and the type of improvements they would like to see. These comments have helped develop a final design for the area, however the following table outlines our proposals for Leyton Town Centre as stated in the original Mini-Holland bid document.
