Following Lambeth's Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Wednesday 09 December 2020, we spoke to our Chief Executive Officer Jitinder Takhar about the council’s review of governance of Homes for Lambeth.
"This comprehensive governance review enables us to provide transparency around our ambitious programme to build thriving communities and better futures. Our business plan, which is approved annually by Lambeth's Cabinet, enables the council’s elected representatives to scrutinise, to challenge and to be kept abreast of the progress we are making."
"We involve our residents at every stage of our programme, from procuring the right architects to the choice of kitchens in our new homes and this level of involvement enables our residents to shape how we build then manage their homes."
"In addition to building more homes, we aim to build thriving communities by investing in well-being, employment and training opportunities to help our residents through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our regular monitoring of these programmes will help us accurately measure the impact we are making in the community."
