Ray of hope for South Grove Lodge

Some hope in the document for the retention of the South Grove Lodge and open amenity space……

Development should protect and enhance heritage assets on site and in the surrounding areas, including the workhouse building and the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Conservation Area.

The Green Grid route should be integrated within the site along Southern Grove.
