Lambeth Council’s house builder Homes for Lambeth (HfL) has become a fully accredited Living Wage employer, pledging to pay all its staff a fair wage that reflects their efforts and the basic cost of living.
Homes for Lambeth, Lambeth Council’s new wholly-owned housing company, has 70 new affordable homes ready for occupation. Work is also set to start on another 159 new homes across the south London borough in the coming 12 months, according to the company’s business plan for the next financial year which was published this week.
Dozens of local families will soon be moving into new affordable homes in the heart of Lambeth as the properties near completion. Lambeth will soon have 89 new homes in Kennington on land transformed from an underused council-owned site around a former underground car park into a priceless asset for the local community.
A group of directors with decades of experience in housing, local government and industry has been hand-picked to provide independent oversight and strong governance for Lambeth’s new council-owned housing company, Homes for Lambeth.
