Responses to a housing survey are landing on the town hall door mat by the sack load, as more than 6000 Lambeth tenants and leaseholders have put pen to paper. The consultation is at the heart of the Lambeth Housing Standard, a project in which every Lambeth Council tenant and leaseholder has been asked for their opinions about what is important to them in terms of housing investment.
Residents’ feedback will be used to co-produce with the council, a ‘housing blueprint’ document that will help the council prioritise what housing improvement works are carried out, and where, over the coming years.
The project was launched last autumn at the annual residents’ conference and a series of workshops have also been held across the borough to back up the survey and to give local people an opportunity to have their say about future priorities for housing investment.
Cllr. +Lib Peck, cabinet member for housing said: “I’m both delighted and overwhelmed by the sheer number of people that have responded to the survey – their views are vital and will be at the heart of the housing investment blueprint – the Lambeth Housing Standard”.
The proposed Lambeth Housing Standard document will be presented to Cabinet for approval in March.
