  The ongoing regeneration of the London Docklands has been greatly favoured and recent government funding has enabled planning and construction to start. Many upcoming projects will add to the current prestigious home and business offices on offer that enhance the lively and busy lifestyle of those living and working in the Docklands.   The Thames Gateway plan is the largest and most complex project of urban regeneration ever undertaken in the United Kingdom.
