Housing Needs Surveys for Fenwick Estate Residents

We are moving forward with the rebuilding of Fenwick Estate to build better homes for current residents and more new homes to help tackle Lambeth’s housing crisis. As part of this we have started the Housing Needs Surveys with residents.

Why are Housing Needs Surveys important?

The Key Guarantees give all secure tenants and resident homeowners the right to be involved in shaping the master plan for each new estate and the Housing Needs Survey is part of this as the council needs to have up-to-date and accurate information on you and your household. We need this information so when we are working with you and your neighbours to develop the master plan for your new estate, we can ensure that the new homes are designed and built to meet your requirements. To do this, officers will need to meet with you at your home to talk about your housing needs, ask you some questions about you and your household and answer any concerns you may have. We will provide details of the support that will be available to help you through this process. 

When will the surveys start?

We have initially started Housing Needs Surveys for tenants only and over the coming year we will visit all residents across the estate. We will be scheduling home visits on a block by block basis and will write to you when we are about to start the surveys on your part of the estate. There will be morning and afternoon appointments available.  

What if I don’t want to stay on the rebuilt estate? 

The survey will be used to work out your housing needs so that we can make sure that the new homes that we build on the estate can respond to the needs of the residents that live here. However, we do appreciate that some residents may not wish to remain on the estate and will request to move away.  We want to work with you to find out what your needs are now, which will allow us to work up a range of options that encourages the existing community to stay together. Our aim is to minimise disruption and uncertainty by providing you with clear information, in order for you to make an informed decision about what would be suitable for you and your household.
