Meet Genstacia - New Resident Engagement Officer

Dear residents,

I have recently joined Homes for Lambeth as Resident Engagement Officer for Cressingham Gardens, Westbury and Fenwick. I will be taking over from Abdul Haque. My initial background was finance before moving into resident consultation and community engagement. I have worked on a range of interesting projects including the Neighbourhood Enhancement Programme in Lambeth and a range of other housing and development projects. I am looking forward to meeting you and finding out how I can serve your community.

Bat survey

Following on from last month’s successful visit to Cressingham Gardens by two members of the Mott MacDonald ecologist team, Mott MacDonald will be recommending further surveys due to the discovery of potential roosting features suitable for bats at Cressingham Gardens. Further details are awaited.


Seated yoga in the hub

On the Tuesday 18th June at 4.15 – 5pm we will be joined by Claire from Yoga Radiance. Claire will be running a chair yoga session. All residents are welcome to attend.

The session is free, open to all ages, and will be a gentle introduction to seated yoga. We hope to see you there!



Lollard Street visits 

As mentioned in previous newsletters, Homes for Lambeth has now taken management of its first 70 council level rent homes at Lollard Street in Kennington.

At the moment residents are moving into these homes via a local lettings plan and through the councils Choice Based Lettings scheme.

In early May we had a successful open house event to show residents and councillors around the new homes. They could see what the first Homes for Lambeth homes look like, as well as the new public spaces, built as a part of the development which is open to all residents.

Feedback on these new homes was positive. We also captured lots of comments which Homes for Lambeth can look at for future houses. This included comments around the space left for people to put in their own cookers and fridges in the kitchens and the fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms.
