COMMUNITY LEADERS VISIT MANOR ROAD QUARTER
On 28th September, Manor Road Quarter welcomed a range of community leaders to celebrate the site's delivery of 400 new affordable homes.
The event was attended by Deputy Mayor Joanne McCartney, Mayor of Newham Rokhsana Fiaz OBE, London Assembly Member Unmesh Desai and Chief Executive of Metropolitan Thames Valley, Geeta Nanda OBE.
Visitors received a tour of the site, including a finished affordable unit. They also spoke to various apprentices who have been working on the Manor Road Quarter project.
Geeta Nanda OBE said of the project:
“The development at Manor Road is a crucial step in helping to alleviate the housing pressures facing the local community. As the new homes are of a mix of sizes, these benefits will be felt by families and single people alike.
“Manor Road is also a clear demonstration of what can be achieved when national and local government work with the housing sector to build the homes which will help us to tackle the housing crisis both in London and across the nation.
“Investment in housing is an investment in our entire economy and society. Continuing these partnerships is crucial as we work to deliver the homes which ensure everyone has the chance to live in a safe, warm, and affordable home and to live well.”
