As residents will know we have set up Homes for Lambeth to build better homes for current residents well as more homes to help tackle the housing crisis.
Homes for Lambeth (HfL) is 100% council-owned, and the council will have important decisions to take as the owner. The Cabinet will perform this role for the Council and has agreed to set up a special panel to assist in this work and make sure it gets the decisions right. The body is called the Ownership and Stewardship Panel. This panel will scrutinise and monitor all of the companies which make up HfL The Panel will make recommendations to the Cabinet about decisions it needs to take on all of HfL's activities. The Panel members will be four Cabinet Members and a Tenant Member.
The Council is now inviting applications for the Tenant Member of the Panel and for two Alternate Tenant Members who will deputise for the Tenant Member if he or she is unable to attend a Panel meeting or event. The appointments will be for an initial two year period and will be drawn from tenants living on the leading Regeneration Estates: Knights Walk, South Lambeth Estate & Westbury Estate. It is intended that after this initial period, the roles will be open to tenants of other estate on which Homes for Lambeth is working.
The post is unpaid but reasonable expenses will be met. Training and support will be available from appointment and throughout the term of office.
