Newham Housing Points Scheme - Now and then

Hat tip picture to local photographer, Steve Lewis, and Newham History Society Facebook page. It would appear that this photo dates back to the late 1960s. I reckon that I am possibly the same age as that child.

Currently in Newham we are undertaking a review of our entire housing allocation policy. There will be extensive public consultation later this year.

We currently have 28000 households on our waiting list including 5100 homeless in temporary accommodation.

According to the photograph  91 (families?) were housing in June of that year. I wonder what the waiting list was then.
