We are delighted to announce that we will be called Populo Living from Thursday 2nd April.
‘Populo’ is taken from the Borough of Newham’s motto “Progress with the People”, from East Ham’s historic Latin motto "Progressio cum Populo". This demonstrates our commitment to working with the residents of Newham by building high quality, sustainable developments and providing 50% of our homes at genuinely affordable rent levels.
We are central to Newham Council’s Housing Delivery Plan, introduced by the Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz, to tackle the borough’s serious housing shortage, with 27,000 people on the waiting list and 5,200 households in temporary accommodation:
We were set up in 2014, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Newham Council. Newham is now investing £1.5bn in our housing projects. This is underpinned by a £107.5m grant from the Mayor of London’s Building Council Homes of Londoners programme.
