Royal Docks Economic Study

Royal Docks Economic Study

To start the process of developing a definitive development plan for Royal Docks, we undertook an economic baseline and scenario building exercise which will form the basis of all future work in this area.

The Royal Docks in Newham offer a unique opportunity for economic development and regeneration in part arising from its location and available land, but also from its superb waterfront setting and commercial assets. Over the next 25 years the Royal Docks will be transformed. It was therefore critical that the public sector response to this was underpinned by strong evidence and insight.

This was a hugely important assignment that will be influential in shaping the investment priorities which will ultimately ensure growth and development of a high skill, innovative and dynamic business location which is a major driver of growth in London.

This work has been used as the basis of a number of decisions and initiatives within the Royal Docks, which has since been awarded Enterprise Zone status.
