The Development Management Team have published Newsletter 16 for South Lambeth Estate and it is available to read here.
This month we are focusing on considering your feedback from the recent exhibition and getting everything ready for the upcoming planning application. We do hope that you were able to come down and comment on the phase one and the masterplan at the exhibition. If you weren’t able to, they will be available online and in the hub for you to look at and comment on.
Planning Application - We are aiming to submit the planning application shortly. Once this is done the Lambeth Planning Department will check the application to make sure we have submitted all the correct documents. Once the application has been received, we will let you know how you can see and comment on the submitted planning application documents.
EQIA Survey Reminder - We wrote to you a little while ago to let you know that Ottaway Strategic will be on the estate to carry out Equality Impact Assessments for all residents through the summer months. You will be seeing them over the next few weeks across the estate as they visit door to door to carry out their surveys.
Drop -in Sessions -As usual, we are still holding our weekly drop-ins at 2 Broadstone House on Tuesdays from 3.30-7pm. We will be having our coffee and cake drop in on the 12th September where Dionne (Decant Officer) and Amma (Buy Back Officer) will be there to answer your questions.
Compulsory Purchase Order- A Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) is a legal process whereby a public authority uses its statutory powers to compulsorily buy land and property so it can carry out rebuilding. In the case of South Lambeth the CPO will help ensure that the considerable effort in the masterplanning process and securing planning consent is not wasted and we can deliver the scheme we have worked on together. Using CPO powers also means we can offer residents more certainty about the timing of the delivery of the new development.
However, we will continue to talk with all those with outstanding property interests with the aim of reaching a mutual agreeable solution. In the initial report which approved the rebuilding of the South Lambeth Estate, it stated that a CPO would require a further cabinet decision and it is currently planned that this happens later this year.
A presentation explaining the CPO process was made to the REP in July. More information will follow over the next few months about this process and what it means for you. There will be a number of drop in sessions held during this period which will provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about this process. We will let you know of these dates once they have been confirmed.

This is a bumper edition of the newsletter so there is lots to take in. So much will be happening over the next few months as plans for the estate begin to take shape.
Your views on how the regeneration plans are shaping up are really important. If you want to remain on South Lambeth you need to express your likes, dislikes or any ideas that you feel will continue to make the estate a great place to live. As stated before, there is so much going on and things can get a little confusing so if you need any help, an update on the regeneration plans or just simply a chat, please pop into see us at the drop-in at: The Community Hub, no.2 Broadstone, every Tuesday between 3.30pm – 7.00pm.
We are seeking to increase our membership of the South Lambeth Resident Estate Panel (REP) and would like to hear particularly from tenants of blocks Swanage and Sturminster which are currently under-represented. If you are not in these blocks but would like to join then we are more than happy for more members to attend.
Resident Engagement Panels (REP’s) are an important part of how Lambeth Council engages with residents affected by the estates regeneration programme. The next REP meeting will be on the 5th September (the details are in the table below).
What is the REP?
- Enable members to understand the background to regeneration options – subject to data-protection and Freedom of
- Information restrictions
- Allow residents to have their say on issues affecting them.
- Act as a sounding board for Council officers and Council Members so they can understand issues from a resident perspective. Provide feedback on the feelings on the estate regarding current activities and Council proposals and feedback from a resident perspective on recent engagement activities.
- Question the Council on its proposals and test whether other courses of action have been explored or could be explored
- Advise on how best to engage with residents generally and with different resident groups
- Highlight issues arising and sensitivities from a resident’s perspective
- Help to identify how residents can influence processes and proposals
- Comment on delivery strategy – design, phasing, construction, etc.
Meetings happen on a monthly basis, so if you have the time and the enthusiasm to work with us, please feel free to call me on 0744 582 3726 or Claire on 020 7089 2138.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer and hopefully see you in September
