When Mayor Fiaz took over last May, she promised to start building at least 100 homes in her first year and 1,000 over her four year term. She has doubled her year one target as work has already started on 227 new homes in 11 sites across Newham. The Mayor is also on target to exceed the 1,000 new homes promised by 2022.
In recognition of this achievement, alongside the publication of the Greater London Authority’s annual affordable housing figures, which saw 14,544 affordable homes started across the capital last year, London’s Deputy Mayor for Housing, James Murray visited a development site at Didsbury Close, East Ham.
Mayor Fiaz’s work to build more council homes has been supported by the Mayor of London after Newham made a successful bid to the Building Council Homes for Londoners programme and awarded £107 million in grant funding. This was the highest allocation out of all London boroughs. To help support further house building, Mayor Fiaz and her administration have also allocated a further £515million for housing delivery.
