Extra precautions have been out in place to try and reduce disruption from this year’s Lovebox.

And festival goers have been warned to respect the local area by Tower Hamlets mayor John Biggs.

He said: “Lovebox should be a celebration, there is no excuse for disruptive and anti-social behaviour.”

The number of stewards on routes to the event in Victoria Park have been more than doubled and additional staff will also patrol the route at the end of the festival.

More toilets have been put in place for revellers to use as they make their way to the park for the two-day event on Friday, July 15-16. And there will be signs directing people to the facilities and reminding them to respect the local residents.

Additional street cleaning is also planned to help tidy up nearby streets after the festival.

The measures have been put in place after Mayor Biggs raised residents concerns with Lovebox organisers.

He said: “Lovebox brings significant economic benefits to our borough but we have a duty to ensure it takes place with minimal disruption to local residents.

“Hosting this festival raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for the local people at a time when the Government are cutting £59million from our budget.

“Whilst this kind of event inevitably causes some disruption, it also allows us to keep investing in our parks and open spaces, keeping Victoria Park as one of the country’s highest quality and most loved parks. I hope these extra precautions will help to strike the right balance.”

A Lovebox spokesperson said they had committed even more resources to the 12th annual festival year to minimise the impact on local residents and added: “This remains an extremely high priority for us.”
