Redbridge is an outer London borough with a culturally rich and diverse community, acknowledged as a great place to live, with high-performing schools, high-quality green spaces, sports facilities and excellent public transport networks along with relatively affordable housing. The borough is experiencing significant population growth, with five key growth areas identified to deliver a range of new housing, and commercial and social infrastructure. Building on these strengths and opportunities, regeneration will be the key driver for growth in the borough ensuring that the benefits will reach all our communities. We will accommodate our growing population, energise our town centres, support our micro businesses in establishing and growing, create better and healthier places and tackle the root causes of social challenges.
