Estate regeneration programme
Introducing estate regeneration
We have committed £450m to invest in our housing stock over the next five years - the biggest ever investment in Lambeth homes to bring them up to the Lambeth Housing Standard which was co-produced by Lambeth residents and formally adopted by Cabinet in 2012. Despite this level of investment it is still insufficient to address the issues on all of the borough's estates.
The Estate Regeneration Programme shows a clear commitment to delivering high quality homes across the borough. The six programme priorities are:
- a programme which is based on joint working with residents to develop proposals which they can support
- to improve access to and the quality of the local environment with outstanding public spaces and housing that promotes low energy consumption and environmental sustainability
- to promote mixed and sustainable communities which provide a high quality of life for people of all ages and backgrounds, in safe, cohesive and healthy neighbourhoods, supported by high quality housing and excellent community buildings
- to enable local people to take advantage of economic opportunity in Lambeth with support for training, employment and enterprise
- to support the cultural heritage of the borough and to build on the distinct sense of place
- to increase the supply and quality of homes, maximising the delivery of new affordable homes and meeting local needs, including housing for families.
