Choosing to live in Newham

It's a good time to be choosing Newham as a place to live.

There has never been a better time to consider investing in Newham property. Regeneration schemes and the Olympics mean around 38,000 new or upgraded homes, including 8,000 at Silvertown Quays and 8,000 in the revitalised Canning Town area.

Whether you're already living in the borough or looking to move here from another part of London, the UK or even another part of the world, be assured that it's a good time to be choosing Newham as a place to live.

Newham provides great value and a good investment - property prices here are around 30 per cent below the London average. For those who cannot afford to buy, Newham is investing heavily in public sector homes and support for people on low incomes to buy a share in their homes.

Regeneration projects are increasing the number of homes to rent and buy in the borough. These include the Olympic development, Stratford City, Silvertown Quays and the Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Project that forms part of the Government's Mixed Communities Initiative.

These are some useful resources provided by the council to help you find an affordable home.

Allocation of council homes is done through East London Lettings and is available to priority cases from the housing waiting list and a small number of transfers.
