A constituent would like to know what are you doing to support Nubia Way, the first black housing co-op in London, which is under threat?

I want to do all I can to support Nubia Way, which has set a precedent for self and custom build in London and has inspired other similar schemes in Lewisham. My officers have met Lewisham Council to raise our concerns about the issues Nubia Way is facing, and to understand what support residents may require, and they will also be contacting Chisel housing association and the Regulator of Social Housing.
