Let to Newham Council – Area Guide
Already home to sites like West Ham United FC and the ExCel Centre, the East London Borough of Newham is expected to see population growth of 91,000 between 2015 and 2039.
It’s a statistic that is perhaps befitting of the borough’s motto of “Progress with the People”, as the area is set to see growth in not only the number of people living there, but also the number of local amenities. Newham is currently experiencing an incredibly high rate of urban regeneration, prompted by the 2012 Summer Olympics and the development of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. There are a number of libraries, museums, parks and schools in Newham and further expansion is set to regenerate this area.
Why invest in Newham?
Although Newham was previously a borough that has been home to high levels of deprivation, the local economy has turned around considerably over the past five to ten years.
Levels of poverty and unemployment have shrunk, with Newham experiencing the second-biggest drop in deprevation levels in the country. However, the borough is still home to the highest social rents in the country, with the average rent being £128.89 a week (ONS). While this is at the moment higher than the average weekly income (£111.10), this could change as new developments in the area are creating more and more jobs. There is a great deal of land available for which there are plans in place for development, and there is a great deal being done to boost local employment. According to the local council, an estimated £22 billion will have been invested by 2025, delivering over 100,000 new jobs in the process. It is also expected that 35,000 new homes are going to be developed, and with the extension of the Crossrail project, residents can reach the city centre for work with ease. Development in areas such as the East Village and Westfield Shopping Centre has created more jobs and provided residents with more in the way of local shopping and entertainment too. Property prices locally have risen by 11.4 per cent annually bringing the average house price to £337,474, a figure substantially less than the London-wide average of £530,409 (Land Registry, February 2015). This provides investors with a great opportunity to buy in what can be considered a promising emerging market.
