Community Regeneration

Under my leadership the council has built two new leisure centres both in our most deprived wards in Ilford South.


We are building two more centres, one in Ilford town centre ensuring Redbridge residents have access to a healthy lifestyle.


We have launched the biggest regeneration agenda in the council’s history, making full use of the 4 Cross Rail stations in Redbridge, the council is embracing the opportunity to help small businesses and night time economy.

We are building 6 brand new Community Hubs.


The new hubs will incorporate brand-new state of the art libraries, gym facilities, multi GP surgeries, Children’s Centres and other facilities as residents need. Two hubs will be in Ilford South, in Seven Kings and Ilford town centre.


Redbridge has some of the best libraries in the country. We have kept every single library in Redbridge open and operational over my administration.

We are investing £1.6m into Redbridge’s 29 parks and open spaces, providing new or revitalised play equipment to continue Labour’s health and wellbeing agenda.


9 Redbridge parks have been awarded the coveted Green Flag, this is important not just for the environment but also for our quality of life and health.


I have kept the council offering Free Bulky waste and Green Garden Waste collection to help tackle fly-tipping.

This is disgusting behaviour and it is right that youths and their parents will be prosecuted.

Keep your children at home.

Jas Athwal - Leader of Redbridge Council

Today our fantastic refuse workers were out bright and early working hard for all residents.

This has not been an easy time for our staff who've had to work harder and for longer hours to cover those who are unwell or self-isolating.

I am so proud of Cllr John Howard and his team for pulling through in this difficult time. Thank you for everything.

If you see members of our cleansing team, please feel free to say hi and thank you (from a distance)!

We have had to make the difficult decision to pause our separate recycling service. This is to ensure we can still collect household waste & protect our staff

Your recycling will still be collected with your household waste, so please put it in black bin bags or in your wheelie bin if you have one.

Please bear with us, these are exceptional circumstances and the usual service will resume as soon as possible.

You can find out more about the changes to services we are having to make because of the impact of Coronavirus here -

We have also produced a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the changes to waste services -
