Even more new council homes coming soon

01 February, 2019

• AS ward councillors and community champions for Bunhill, we are determined to see more new, genuinely affordable homes built for local people.

This includes building more council homes, with people in housing need who live nearby given priority for moving into these homes.

We have worked hard over recent years to secure new council homes at the Redbrick estate. In fantastic news, we are delighted that Islington Council will now be building 55 council homes on the estate, an increase from the 39 originally planned.

This means that 100 per cent of the homes being built on the estate will be council homes. We’ve been able to make this wonderful project even better thanks to the council commitment to build council homes, and to funding from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

The council is deliver­ing the largest new council house-building pro­gramme for more than 30 years, and will build at least 550 more council homes by 2022. We are over the moon that more of those homes will be made available to people in Bunhill.
