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.
