To help bring our vision to life we have four clear objectives:
Decent and genuinely affordable homes for all: building new council homes, protecting private renters, being a good landlord and preventing homelessness
Jobs and opportunity: delivering an inclusive economy, supporting people into work and ensuring young people have the best possible start
A safer borough for all: tackling ASB, ensuring young people are safe and encouraging a more cohesive borough for all
A greener and cleaner Islington: keeping Islington clean and tidy, encouraging greener travel, creating a healthier environment for all and tackling the climate crisis.
Delivering fairness has been an increasing challenge not least because of around £250m cuts to our budget by government over the last ten years. However we’ve managed to balance our budgets and have continued to make strides towards our goal.
