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.

Local charities like Project Malachi - a pop up hostel & workshop for Ilford are doing great work with us to support rough sleepers.

Unfortunately, organised crime groups are working across London to exploit the real issue of rough sleeping by conning people out of their money.

We are taking action on aggressive begging locally. Please donate your money to local homelessness charities instead of giving to these organised crime groups.

I’m really pleased to be able to share some exciting news on Seven Kings Park.

Our Council has partnered with Trees for Cities to plant a brand new biodiverse woodland just to the north of Seven Kings Park. The new woodland will include Alder, Hornbeam, Walnut and Oak trees and we will begin planting next week to coincide with National Tree Week.

As the trees grow they will not only create a beautiful woodland for local people to enjoy, but they will also help clean the air and create a natural environment to support habitats and food for urban wildlife, like hedgehogs and bats.

Trees for Cities is the only charity of its kind working nationally and internationally to plant trees in cities to improve lives and cultivate lasting change in neighbourhoods.

The charity has been working with Redbridge Council for several years forming a partnership that has led to a number of successful environmental initiatives including new woodlands and orchards in Goodmayes, Hainault, Woodford and Roding Valley, and new trees for South Park, Loxford Park and Barley Lane.
