East London Housing Partnership
The East London Housing Partnership is one of London’s five housing sub-regions. Its membership comprises the housing departments of eight London boroughs (Barking & Dagenham, City of London, Havering, Hackney, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest).
The purpose of the partnership is to work collectively on housing strategy, delivery of housing programmes, sharing good practice and representing East London’s interest at a London and national level.
The East London Housing Partnership Board comprises the elected lead member for housing for each member authority and its housing director. They meet quarterly to discuss both strategic and operational issues and oversees the progress of priorities identified in the affordable housing investment framework and housing strategy.
The heads of service meet every six weeks to discuss the work programme. We also have a number of sub-groups of local authority and registered social landlord officers that work on specific areas of work such as:
- housing development
- housing allocations
- black and minority ethnic strategy
- policy development
- private sector housing
