South Lambeth Estate Newsletter April 2018

The Development Management Team have published Newsletter 24 for South Lambeth and it can be read here.


Welcome to this month’s newsletter! We hope that you have had a great Easter break! 

Leena Grocers: We are sad to announce that after 39 years selling groceries on Dorset Road, Leena Grocers will be closing at the end of May. Aruna and Dinesh Patel have decided that the time has come for them to retire. We would like to say a big thank you for the service that they have provided for the local community for nearly four decades. 

Aruna and Dinesh will be greatly missed by the local community. We wish them a happy retirement, and all the best for the future. If you are passing by the shop, please go in and wish them well. 

Planning application: We are currently waiting for a date for the planning application to be heard at committee. Once this is confirmed you will receive a letter to tell you when this is and how you can take part. If you have any questions about the planning application you can contact us on the details below or pop into the drop in sessions held every Tuesday. 

We are pleased to let you know that on the 20th March Lambeth’s Planning Application Committee resolved to grant full planning permission, for 84 new homes on Knight’s Walk Estate and granted outline planning permission for the wider masterplan for the Westbury Estate. 

Drop -in Sessions: We are holding our weekly drop-ins at 2 Broadstone House on Tuesdays. Please note that we are reverting back to the previous time slot of 3.30pm - 6.30pm every Tuesday. If you are unavailable at this time, please feel free to contact us for a home visit at your convenience. 

Best Regards 

Anna and Cleo On behalf of your Regeneration team.

Resident Homeowner Meetings 

As promised in our March newsletter, meetings were held at no.2 Broadstone House on 17th and 18th April to support resident homeowners wanting more information about their housing options and the regeneration of South Lambeth estate. 

Items discussed included: 

  • What is Homes for Lambeth – how does it differ from LB Lambeth? 
  • Your Lease and Tenancy Agreement 
  • Cost of the new properties 
  • Service Charges in the new homes 
  • The Buy Back process 
  • What is zero rent and rent shared ownership? 


Officers working on the development of South Lambeth were in attendance to respond to homeowner queries. I hope that residents who attended found the meetings useful. We will share the feedback from the sessions in the next edition of the newsletter.
