Newham promises to put residents first
People living in flats to rent in the London borough of Newham will be put first by the council following the latest local Budget, the mayor has promised.
According to Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales, the council will not be compromising the services provided to local people in the near future and is committed to making it a great place to live and visit.
Last month, a discussion featuring 300 residents, including people living in flats to rent in the London borough of Newham, resulted in promises to act in their best interests regarding changes to the local authority's budget.
Sir Robin explained that this promise is still valid following the Budget and will continue to be as long as he is mayor.
"Unlike anywhere else in London, we provide the first parking permit free per household. We are one of a handful of councils across the country also continuing to provide free school meals," he explained.
Newham will also be on the route for the cycling races at the London Olympic Games next year, it was recently confirmed by the organisers.
