The Mayors of London and Newham have joined forces with Property Week magazine and the London Development Agency's Design for London team to launch a competition to find exciting temporary (or ‘meanwhile’) uses for three high profile sites in the Royal Docks and Canning Town.
The competition aims to show how temporary uses can be a catalyst for regeneration. It is a fabulous opportunity for developers, investors, designers, artists, thinkers, entrepreneurs, local people and community groups to win the right to use the three sites, potentially for free, in the run up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and beyond.
If you want to get a closer look at the sites on offer, you can register to attend an event on:
Tuesday 14 December, 1.00pm – 5.00pm
The event will include visits to all three sites and a session back at Newham Dockside to find out more from the competition organisers and get a chance to meet other potential entrants.
Places for the site visit event are limited, so please sign up now to guarantee your place. These will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and to ensure a wide range of organisations can take part, places are limited to two people per organisation.
