In a press release issued by the council today, Andrew Baikie, Sir Robin’s ‘5-days-a-week’ mayoral advisor for housing is quoted as saying:

We are experiencing an acute housing shortage in Newham and our council housing stock is imperative to helping us tackle this.

Indeed, councillor. Well said.

So it’s mystifying that you are deliberately leaving hundreds of council properties empty on the Carpenters Estate and why you are working with Countryside PLC to sell off ‘surplus’ council homes under the NewShare scheme.

Perhaps you could explain?
