Robert has joined the Homes for Lambeth team as Development Manager for Cressingham Gardens. Robert will be taking over from Anna Allan who has now left her role on Cressingham Gardens.

Robert initially trained as an architect in Manchester, moving to central London to work, specialising in designing housing of all tenures ranging from single homes to large estate regeneration projects.

After leaving architecture he spent some time at the Housing Corporation and has more recently worked on 4 large-scale housing developments in London as a Technical Manager, ensuring quality of both Design and Construction by managing the external design Team (Architect, Engineer, Landscape Architects etc.).

He has lived most of his adult life as a tenant in either Local Council accommodation or Housing Association Flats. Robert told us “I have always believed that everybody deserves to live somewhere
safe and beautiful and that great design enhances lives”.


As mentioned in previous newsletters, Homes for Lambeth was due to take the management of it first 70 homes at Lollard Street in Kennington. Homes for Lambeth has now done this and residents are now moving into these new council level rent homes. To allow residents to see what these Homes for Lambeth homes look like we have arranged two open house sessions - the details are below:

4 to 7pm on the 8th May and 1 to 5pm on the 9th May

Lollard Street, SE11 6BH - head to corner of Lollard Street and Bricklayers Road

If you have any questions about the open house sessions please contact us on the details at the end of this newsletter.

A Bat Survey was conducted by Ecologists on Cressingham Gardens on the Friday 5th April. The survey was a ground-level assessment of buildings and trees in Cressingham Gardens to confirm the presence of potential bat roosting features. Any identified features on buildings and trees that have potential for a bat roost presence, will feed in to determine the level of bat activity surveys that may be required at Cressingham Gardens.

We will update residents as more surveys are agreed and conducted, along with key findings through the Design Forum.
