This week Southwark Labour announced one of its key pledges for the local elections - to ensure that every council tenant has a good quality kitchen and bathroom as part of the second phase of our Warm, Dry & Safe programme.
The Warm, Dry & Safe programme is a £326 million project investing in getting the basics right in all of our council properties and is due to complete in 2016. Many residents have already benefitted from having new windows, doors, roofs and electrics fitted.
But any good landlord needs to continue investing in their property to ensure that their tenants have the best quality homes possible. That is why we have pledged to start rolling out the kitchen and bathroom programme from 2016 onwards. It is good news for all of our 39,000 tenants.
We will work up details for the project if we are re-elected in May, but given our record of delivering on promises we make no one should be in any doubt that this is a serious pledge which we will keep!
