Help secure the £220 million investment needed to bring the remaining 7,000 council homes in Tower Hamlets up to a decent standard.
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister and the Chancellor to safeguard the £220 million allocated to Tower Hamlets, by the previous Labour Government, to finish its Decent Homes programme. We welcome the Prime Minister’s recognition of our local need, and that "good quality social housing is vital...".
However, we highlight that this investment is crucial if we are to bring the remaining 7,000 council homes up to the national Decent Homes standard – making sure these homes are safe, warm, and secure for so many families suffering from poor housing and overcrowding. We call on the Government not to let these local residents down.
