We're really excited to share some news about Project Malachi, an effort to help some of the most vulnerable people in Redbridge who are entrenched in rough sleeping. After a lot of hard work, we have submitted the planning application!
Up until April 8th, there is an opportunity to write in support. You can do that by signing the petition below!
Support for Planning Application No. 0327/18, Pop Up Hostel at 1a Chadwick Road, Ilford
I am delighted to write in support the planning application for the proposed Pop Up Hostel at 1a Chadwick Road, Ilford.
As you will be aware, Redbridge has a considerable homelessness problem. The Redbridge Cold Weather Centre offers some temporary overnight accommodation over the winter period. However, the real need in the Borough is for a facility that will provide a safe place to live for people who are having to sleep rough where they can receive the support they need to get back into employment and into longer-term accommodation.
I look forward to hearing that the Council have promptly approved the planning application so that the Hostel can be in operation as soon as possible.
