A New Housing Strategy for Havering

Closed 7 Mar 2021

Opened 14 Dec 2020


Summary and purpose

The Council remains committed to doing everything we can to tackle the ‘Housing Crisis’ both in providing those much needed new affordable homes for local people in Havering and supporting vulnerable members of society to have a home that they can be proud to live in.

Building new homes remains a high priority to meet the needs of our fast growing population in Havering. The Council is taking a pro-active approach to housing delivery, as it recognises the importance of ensuring that there is the necessary provision of genuinely affordable homes for local people.

We are doing this by working with partners to build new homes, with an ambitious 12 estates regeneration programme across existing Council estates to revitalise Havering’s Housing and investing in building new communities.

Alongside our existing ambitious regeneration plans for Havering, we will set out our vision for those living in Council managed new and existing homes within the borough. We will also set out how we will work with local residents to shape sustainable communities, future proofing for the next five years to 2026.
