Your Labour Council is setting an example by pushing forward the largest Council home building programme in a generation. We will deliver over 300 new Council homes across Reading in the next four years. This also includes new community centres, new key worker housing and new extra-care homes so that everyone has the chance to thrive in Reading. All Council homes are being built to the very highest environmental standards – reducing both carbon emissions and utility bills for residents.
We’re also taking steps to wrestle control back from developers who build substandard homes by converted into flats without planning permission. We’re fighting back by introducing new local requirements for developers, and we’re getting more affordable homes out of private developments.
Reading needs family homes and more affordable homes – so you don’t have to choose between the town you love and moving somewhere cheaper.
Vote Labour in Reading on Thursday 5th May for a town of sustainable and inclusive communities.
