About Newham

Newham is perhaps the youngest, most diverse and vibrant local authority in the UK. We are transforming how the Council works to put people at the heart of everything we do and to create better homes and neighbourhoods for our residents. 

Over the last decade, Newham has already seen an unprecedented amount of external investment and growth in population, with c.7,500 people joining the borough in 2019 alone. However, despite this, Newham still has some of the poorest neighbourhoods in the country.

Newham is an ambitious Council looking to be on the front foot in collaborating with its residents and businesses to create a flourishing place. We are adopting a community Wealth Building agenda, underpinned by the principles of economic, social and environmental justice so that long-term prosperity, wellbeing and fairness for all our residents in the borough is achieved and our response to the Climate Emergency is progressed.
