The issue of housing is a major one and it affects people everywhere including Redbridge. A good number of people are in the waiting list in Redbridge. Waiting time depending on type of house or flat varies. People with larger families are living in dire conditions. Redbridge council has a plan to build over 1000 new affordable homes over the next 5 years.
We do not want developers taking over our housing block without providing a good number of affordable house or flat to local people. There are a huge number of rough sleepers in Redbridge. If I am elected, I will work with the local authority to build more affordable housing and will take initiative to bring down rough sleepers into zero. I will work to increase the supply of affordable housing to prevent homelessness and to reduce the use of temporary housing.
