Where is the commitment that people will only have to move once?
Through engagement with residents affected by estate regeneration, it has become clear that the commitment to ensure people only have to move once is not always the preferred option. Some residents have expressed a firm preference that construction times are reduced to a minimum. There is a tension between speed of the construction programme and a commitment that people only move once.
It is for this reason that it is suggested that the council/Homes for Lambeth will engage with residents on each estate during the development of the phasing programme for an estate. This will explore what residents’ preferences are between overall length of construction works and whether people need to move once or twice.
