A new vision for Havering Council has been ratified by full council this evening

Published: Wednesday, 22 February 2017

The Council’s 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," said Andrew Blake-Herbert, Chief Executive of Havering Council.

Since February 2015, the Council has been working towards a clean, safe and proud borough. While these are key values to the people of Havering, the borough has so much more to offer, not just to residents but to the whole of London.

Councillor Roger Ramsey, Leader of the Council, said:

"Havering is one of London’s big opportunity areas, with fantastic communities, places, opportunities and connections and these are the four themes that the vision is focused on".

Deputy Mayor of London for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, Jules Pipe, said:

"With its excellent transport links into central London, extensive town centre regeneration and the highest concentration of green space anywhere in London, Havering has a unique offer as a place to live, work and visit.

"By making the most of its position and opportunities, Havering is becoming a hub for start-ups and expanding businesses, as well as construction, logistics, engineering and manufacturing industries."
