Havering Council cabinet members are set to discuss a proposed £30million grant from the GLA to pay for more affordable housing in the borough over the next three years.
At a meeting at Havering Town Hall on Wednesday, cabinet member for housing, Councillor Damian White, will seek approval to enter into a grant agreement with City Hall to receive £30,296,000 in grants as part of London’s Affordable Housing Scheme.
It is expected councillors will grant approval.
In a letter to Havering Council’s chief executive, Andrew Blake Herbert, City Hall’s assistant director of housing, Jamie Ratcliff, thanks Havering for the ambition it has shown.
He continues: “These allocations represent just the start of delivery against our ambitious aims, and it is vital that our teams continue to work closely together in order to unlock, optimise and accelerate opportunities to build as many genuinely affordable homes for Londoners as possible.”
