A great day for Newstead Rd & Leybridge Court

I was delighted to be able to stand in for Lewisham’s Mayor Sir Steve Bullock today and to have the privilege of marking the formal transfer of homes on Newstead Road and Leybridge Court to Broomleigh Housing Association. 

It was great to meet so many of the residents who have made this stock transfer happen – I know they are only too keen to see the improvement works get underway (a special mention must go to Igor who has put hours of his time into chairing the steering group).

£26M will be spent on improving properties over the next 2 years as part of the government’s decent homes programme – residents will benefit from new kitchens and bathrooms, new windows and works to the grounds. Two new community centres will also be built in the future. I enjoyed a great cup of tea in the McEwan Centre but I can see why a new (and bigger) community building might be the order of the day!
