SHADWELL HOMES & GARDENS
We love Shadwell, but there are things about it we'd like to improve. After our successful campaign to have lighting installed along the paths in our park, we want to continue transforming our neighbourhood so that it works for local people. We've identified several key sites around the church that could be developed, and we're starting by doing some listening in the community to work out our next steps.
The climate crisis is the biggest challenge our generation will face, and we are determined to act before it's too late. Along with other institutions in London Citizens, we're building power to challenge unsustainable practices in our society.
HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS
There is not enough genuinely affordable housing in Shadwell. Local people are being priced out of their own neighbourhood, and there is a desparate need for secure accommodation for the homeless. We have already won a site for a Community Land Trust on Cable Street, and we are beginning to campaign for more affordable options — including housing pods for homeless people on unused landbanked sites.
