The Economic Regeneration Team is key to delivering on The Mayor of Newham's Community Wealth Building agenda. This agenda is set to transform Newham into a beacon of Community Wealth Building to ensure economic growth in our borough is shared locally and held democratically. Growth has too often failed to bring benefits to all of Newham’s residents. Our new approach means we’re not just looking outwards, at attracting investment. We will also focus inwards, at realising the potential of our community, our residents, our businesses, and our voluntary sector. This is the source of wealth and talent that will drive a fairer and more prosperous Newham.
