Your Homes For Lambeth


I’m David Silvey, your new Resident Engagement Officer. My main responsibility is to be the point of contact for residents, to ensure that you are aware of our plans, that you understand timescales for planned works in your area and to answer any questions that you may have.

Professionally, I have worked on a number of large infrastructure projects, working directly with local communities to keep them informed of planned and ongoing works, and dealing with questions raised by the community. I have also previously worked on some major sporting events including the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics and the Tour de France.

I am looking forward to developing good working relationships between HFL and local residents in order to provide positive results for the community.

Outside of work I enjoy watching sport (especially football), music and gardening. I am married with a young son.

If you have any questions about your area, please do get in touch with me.
