London Borough of Newham

The London Borough of Newham is a London borough created in 1965 by the London Government Act 1963. It covers an area administered by the Essex county boroughs of West Ham and East Ham, authorities that were both abolished by the same act; the name Newham combines the compass points of the old borough names. It is 5 miles east of the City of London, north of the River Thames. Newham was one of the six host boroughs for the 2012 Summer Olympics and contains most of the Olympic Park including the London Stadium; the local authority is Newham London Borough Council. The borough's motto, from its coat of arms, is "Progress with the People"; the coat of arms was derived from that of the County Borough of West Ham, while the motto is a translation of the County Borough of East Ham's Latin "Progressio cum Populo". The borough was formed by merging the former area of the Essex county borough of East Ham and the county borough of West Ham as a borough of the newly formed Greater London, on 1 April 1965 – these in turn were successors to the ancient civil and ecclesiastical parishes of East Ham and West Ham.

Green Street and Boundary Road mark the former boundary between the two. North Woolwich became part of the borough along with a small area west of the River Roding, part of the Municipal Borough of Barking. Newham was devised for the borough as an new name; the area of the modern borough was at one time occupied by a territory called'Ham'. The first known written use of the term, as'Hamme', is in an Anglo-Saxon charter of 958, again in the 1086 Domesday Book as Hame, it is formed from Old English'hamm' and means'a dry area of land between rivers or marshland', referring to the location of the settlement within boundaries formed by the rivers Lea and Roding and their marshes. These natural boundaries suggest that Little Ilford, North Woolwich and areas of the parish of Barking west of the Roding are to have been part of Ham; the territory was subdivided into the more familiar West and East Ham sometime in the 12th century, with the earliest recorded distinction being as'Westhamma' in 1186. It could be speculated that the partition arose as a result of population increase resulting from economic prosperity delivered by the construction of Bow Bridge over the Lea and the creation of Stratford Langthorne Abbey.

North Woolwich was removed from Ham at an earlier date, in the aftermath of the Norman Conquest but it is unclear when Little Ilford and western Barking were transferred, it is not known for sure that they were part of Ham. The boundary between West and East Ham was drawn from the now lost Hamfrith Waste and Hamfrith Wood in the north, along Green Street down to the small lost, natural harbour known as Ham Creek; the formation of the modern borough in 1965 saw the merger of West and East Ham, together with North Woolwich and Barking west of the River Roding. This reorganisation re-established the earlier territory of Ham. Unlike most English districts, its council is led by a directly elected mayor of Newham. From 2002 to 2009 one of the councillors had been appointed as the "civic ambassador" and performed the civic and ceremonial role carried out by the mayor; the post has been discontinued. At the borough elections held in 2014, the Labour Party won all 60 of the seats on the Council. Sir Robin Wales was re-elected as the borough's Executive Mayor with 61% of the first preference votes cast.

In 2018, Robin Wales was deselected as the Labour Party mayoral candidate. Rokhsana Fiaz was elected in the position of Executive Mayor for the Labour party. Newham has the youngest overall population and one of the lowest indigenous White British populations in the country according to the 2011 UK Census; the borough has the second-highest percentage of Muslims in the UK, after the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, at 32%. A 2017 report from Trust for London and the New Policy Institute found that 36% of local employees in Newham are in low paid work. Newham has a 37% poverty rate, the second-highest rate in London; when using Simpson's Diversity Index on 10 aggregated ethnic groups, the 2001 UK Census identified Newham as the most ethnically diverse district in England and Wales, with 9 wards in the top 15. However, when using the 16 ethnic categories in the Census so that White Irish and White Other ethnic minorities are included in the analysis, Newham becomes the second-most ethnically diverse borough with six out of the top 15 wards, behind Brent with 7 out of the top 15 wards.

In 2018, Newham had the lowest life expectancy and the highest rate of heart disease of all London boroughs together with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. In 2019, the BBC reported that Newham had the highest rate of tuberculosis in the UK at 107 per 100000 population, higher than Rwanda and Iraq according to WHO figures from 2013. More than 80% of TB cases in London occur in people born abroad; the UK average was 13. Newham has the lowest percentage of White British residents of all of London's boroughs; the White British proportion of the population fell from 33.8% in 2001 to 16.7% in 2011. The joint-lowest wards with White British population are Green Street East and Green Street West, both having 4.8% – the third-lowest behind Southall
