Residents of a block of flats in Bow are concerned about plans to build new homes on top of their building. The proposal, which was submitted to the council last week, includes the construction of two additional floors on the existing block.

Many of the residents are worried about the potential impact the development could have on their quality of life. They are concerned about the potential increase in noise and disruption during the construction process, as well as the long-term effects on the structural integrity of the building.

Some residents have also expressed concerns about the lack of consultation on the plans. They say they were not given the opportunity to have their say on the proposal before it was submitted to the council.

The council is now considering the proposal and will make a decision on whether to approve it in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the residents of the block are urging the council to take their concerns into account and consider the potential impact the development could have on their lives.
