Get Involved – public consultation

September 2018 consultation

We are currently undertaking the second round of public consultation for the future of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry.

We recently held two consultation drop-ins on:

  • Thursday 13 September (4pm-8pm)
  • Saturday 15 September (10am-2pm)

This consultation reflects the revised proposals following the feedback provided at the first consultation event held in June 2018. It seeks any final views, prior to the preparation and submission of a planning and listed building consent application to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. You can find responses to some of the common questions raised at the first consultation here.

A copy of the exhibition boards can be found here.

A copy of the feedback from can be found here (please fill in and return by 24 September. Get in touch if you would like an electronic PDF or physical copy provided).

A copy of the consultation invitation can be found here.

All feedback received will be reviewed by the project team and, where possible, incorporated into the proposals.

June 2018 consultation

In order to provide the wider community with an opportunity to view and comment on the emerging proposals and help shape the evolving scheme, Raycliff held a public consultation event on the future of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry site over two days in June.

At the event, members of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry project team were on hand to discuss the proposals with attendees and answer any questions. Feedback forms were made available at the consultation for attendees to provide comments on the proposals.

A copy of the exhibition boards displayed at the June consultation can be found here.

If you would like to give your feedback on the proposals, please fill out a feedback form. Please email or post any completed forms to us by Monday 9th July 2018.

All feedback received was reviewed and, where possible, incorporated into the proposals.

Nocturnal Creatures

On 21 July, Raycliff hosted the Whitechapel Gallery’s ‘Nocturnal Creatures’ event on the former bell foundry site. It was a free festival open to all, bringing together performance, video, sculpture and sound. Artist Rachel Pimm transformed the historic space and re-animated it to the industrial sounds of the machinery and bells to tell stories of agricultural, ecological, military and political history.

Nocturnal Creatures was hosted in several historic and cultural venues within walking distance of the Whitechapel Gallery. Raycliff was delighted to play a part in this and is optimistic that other similar events can be hosted in the future. Please see some images of the event below.
