Housing & Homelessness

Since Labour took control of the council in 2014 we’ve built the first new council houses in 10 years in Redbridge.

 

We have a target to build 1000 new affordable homesover the term of this administration.

 

I have opened a temporary shelter to house every rough sleeper in Redbridge and we are opening a permanent shelter for our residents who are homeless this Summer.

We are tackling rogue landlords with the council Licensing scheme.

 

The scheme improves the quality of life for thousands of our residents as landlords are held to account.

 

We are reversing Tory practices.

 

We have brought the time families spend in bed and breakfast to under 6 weeks, reversing the trend set by the previous Tory administration.

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.
