The neighbourhood will also feature a new primary school, two nurseries, community space, library and health centre. There will also be a beautiful canalside park along the Lee Navigation canal which improves the existing towpath for pedestrians and cyclists, providing spaces for play and recreation.
New bridges will connect Hackney Wick and Fish Island and the Park for the first time.
In early 2015 we announced that East Wick and Sweetwater would be developed together by one consortium led by Places for People and Balfour Beatty. With that appointment in place, work is now underway to submit a full planning application, after which work will begin on site.
