Residents' Charter for Estate Regeneration

Closes 16 Dec 2018

Opened 5 Nov 2018

Overview

Lewisham Council is committed to tackling the housing crisis and delivering 1,000 new social homes across the borough. The redevelopment of existing council homes is a crucial factor in the commitment to provide residents with improved housing.

In order to ensure that this is delivered sustainably, the council would like to hear your views on the proposed Residents’ Charter and to suggest additional guarantees that the council can make to any resident whose home is due to be improved by Council led redevelopment.

The Lewisham Labour Party 2018 Manifesto pledged to: “Introduce ballots on any estate regeneration scheme that includes replacing existing homes and back this up with a Residents’ Charter that guarantees all residents the right to remain on their estate, and which guarantees an increase in genuinely affordable housing.”

We want to increase the number of genuinely affordable homes in Lewisham. We want to know if you agree with the proposed principles in the Residents' Charter, and if there is anything else we should include.

The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
