Havering is London’s next big opportunity. Our new vision, ‘Havering – making a Greater London’, is about embracing the best of what Havering has to offer, and how we as a borough can play an active role in the success of the whole of London. Our vision is focused around the borough’s communities, places, opportunities and connections. With our developing culture and leisure offer, quick links into London, high quality homes, extensive town centre regeneration programmes and our award-winning parks and open spaces, we want Havering to be the next great place to live, work and visit in London.
We want to help our residents to make positive lifestyle choices and ensure a good start for every child to reach their full potential. We will support families and communities look after themselves and each other, with a particular emphasis on our most vulnerable residents.
We will work to achieve a clean, safe environment for all. This will be secured through working with residents to improve our award-winning parks and continuing to invest in our housing stock, ensuring decent, safe and high standard properties. Our residents will have access to vibrant culture and leisure facilities, as well as thriving town centres.
We will provide first-class business opportunities by supporting the commercial development of companies within the borough. We will ensure sustainable economic growth that generates local wealth and opportunities, as well as securing investment in high-quality skills and careers.
We want to capitalise on our location with fast and accessible transport links both to central London and within the borough. Likewise, we will continue to make Havering a digitally-enabled borough that is connected to residents and businesses. Enhancing our connections will strengthen the borough’s offer as a Greater London hub for business.
