The Aberfeldy Village Masterplan aims to deliver 1,500 new homes, new workspace, a new high street and open space in Tower Hamlets. Greengage prepared the Equalities Impact Assessment for the proposed development.
The Equalities Impact Assessment sets out the impacts of the masterplan on people who have a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010. The protected characteristics include age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
The assessment considered the equalities impacts of the development from housing provision, local employment and skills, community facilities, open space, accessibility, and crime and social cohesion. The assessment also included recommendations for future monitoring and reporting of the impacts at detailed design stage for the outline elements of the scheme.
Inclusive design represents a key consideration of the proposed development. Equalities impacts will continue to be considered as part of design development and community engagement approach throughout the detailed design stages of the outline element.
