Listening to you

Listening to local residents about our plans for new homes is an essential part of creating quality new homes and communities. We’d like to hear what you think about our plans, what issues are important to you and any feedback you may have.

Take a look at what you’ve said about each of our developments and our responses using our New Homes Map.

Residents’ Charter for Estate Regeneration

Lewisham Council are introducing a Residents’ Charter for Estate Regeneration, which among other commitments introduces ballots on any estate regeneration scheme that includes replacing existing homes. This will mean that future schemes will include these additional measures for any resident whose home is due to be improved by Council led redevelopment. Lewisham Council wants to ensure that Council led development takes place in a sustainable way that delivers much-needed genuinely affordable housing whilst also protecting and benefitting our existing communities. You can find out more about these changes on their website here, or email the Strategic Housing Team at for more information.
