Welcome to this month’s newsletter.
Good news! Work Experience success:
You may remember that the design team offered a number of work experience opportunities for local people as part of the estate regeneration. One local resident, Christina met PTE back October 2016 at the Fun day on the estate and enquired about work experience. She undertook the work experience in the summer of 2017. PTE mentored her during her A levels, helping her develop her portfolio and with her personal statement. She has accepted a place to study architecture at University of Plymouth following her A level results in August.

PROCESS OF HOW TO APPOINT A CONTRACTOR FOR BLOCK A ON SOUTH LAMBETH ESTATE AND WIMBORNE HOUSE
You can view the process of how we will be appointing the contractor by clicking here.
With new and improved housing, it’s really important that South Lambeth residents start to think about the best way their views are considered by the new landlord Homes for Lambeth (HFL).
I have been contacted by several residents who want to support their neighbours by setting up a tenant and residents association (TRA). They want to make sure that whilst the regeneration work is progressing, resident’s views and concerns are heard by HFL.
Why set up a TRA?
By getting involved with people who want to discuss common concerns or local issues, you can make a difference to where you live.
By talking to the people and organisations that make decisions about where you live i.e. (HFL, Lambeth, Police, councillors, MP) you can make sure they know about the things that affect you and your neighbourhood.
By working with other organisations, as an association or group, you can bring about changes for the better and get things done.
Coming together as a TRA or group can help community spirit in your neighbourhood.
If you want to champion a thriving community, why not get involved?
