The borough has received new funding from the government to help with key services
Residents will benefit after the borough was given £3,730, 000, as part of £900 million in additional government funding established for local councils.
The government have provided £27 million in extra funding to Havering since the pandemic began.
Money will be used locally to help the council cover coronavirus-related costs and ensure it has the resources needed to keep providing key services through the pandemic.
Romford will also receive a share from a further £100 million, for supporting council-run leisure centres across the country, which are vital in helping the health and well-being of local residents.
Local Government and Communities Secretary, The Rt. Hon. Robert Jenrick M.P. said: “Since the start of the pandemic, we have backed local councils with the funding they need to support their communities, protect vital services and recover lost income.
“This extra £1 billion funding will ensure that councils have the resources that they need over the winter and continue to play an essential role on the front line of our response to the virus while protecting the most vulnerable and supporting local businesses.”
Councils across the country have received £6.4 billion in additional direct support since April.
