Question

Thank you for your response to MQT 3910/2011. Unfortunately you seem to have answered a question I did not ask. I wanted to know about renew in City & East (the City, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Barking & Dagenham) and not in the wider East London area which, from your answer, includes Hackney, Waltham Forest & Havering.

Can you therefore provide figures for all 32 boroughs and the City, showing how many homes have been treated under RE:NEW to date and how many will be treated by May 2012?

The Mayor

Between July 2011 and 23rd January 2012, 4,097 homes had been treated under RE:NEW in City & East.

The current rollout of RE:NEW is projected to treat a further 1,065 homes across the City & East London region by the end of March 2012 and a further 384 homes are projected to be treated in the London Boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets through the Olympic Retrofit project by May 2012.

This takes the total number of homes that will be treated under RE:NEW in City & East (the City, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Barking & Dagenham) London by the end of May 2012 to 5,546.

By May 2012 I will have achieved my target of 55,000 homes retrofitted. For the homes treated under RE:NEW to date by borough, please see below:
