We are not criminals; we are hard working citizens striving to give our families the best chances we can in a more and more challenging world, and Lambeth Council should be supporting us, not seeking to undermine us and strip us of our homes and security.
Over the years, we have been deceived, we have been lied to and kept in the dark when we should have been informed, we have been harassed and harangued with rules and dictats on a whim and we have been ignored when we should have been consulted.
But if overpaid officials and wet-behind-the-ear councillors think they can use these tactics to take our homes and secure tenancies from us, or steal back the property they sold us in order to profit from it again, pretending all the while to be concerned with our interests, they had better think again.
The only residents they are concerned with are new ones with pocketloads of cash to buy the pokey little houses that Lambeth plan to build in pretty little streets with views across London to die for.
Well, those views are still OUR views, and our homes, for all the issues and problems we have with them, are still OUR homes, and if Lambeth were at all conscientious in their duties to the residents of the Central Hill Estate, and the way they spend our money, those issues and problems would have been long since remedied.
They have spent 40 years neglecting Central Hill, and are now trying to turn that neglect to their advantage. If they succeed, the only losers in all of this, after developers get their cut, dealmakers get their backhanders, Lambeth Council replenish their coffers and a few newcomers get their pretty little houses.....will be us.
They will NOT succeed.
Lambeth have underestimated the strength of spirit, the pride and the determination that lives in this concrete village. As neighbours feuds are forgotten, and young and old find they suddenly have everything in common, the community is becoming an army and we intend to fight till our last breath, not just for our homes but for our rights as citizens and tax payers to say, "NO" to the planned "regeneration" of the Central Hill Estate.

A very interesting snippet of information has come to light. Maybe that’s the wrong term, as it didn’t so much come to light as failed to get back to the crypt before dawn broke. Nevertheless, our little nugget of news is this…….: Matthew Bennett is going to be running Homes for Lambeth!!! We’re not sure[…]
Niranjan Francis, local Labour Councillor for Gipsy Hill Ward, has died. He has not been seen carrying out official duties for many months due to ill-health, and there was speculation over whether Mr Francis should retire from this role. It is rumoured that Mr Francis had been battling cancer although details surrounding his death[…]
Below is a link to a document which outlines how Savills came to be involved in setting up Homes for Lambeth. Lambeth Council strenuously deny a conflict of interest, but note that the former vice-chair of Lambeth Leasehold Council, Melissa Madjitey is an associate director at Savills……… and “coincidentally” will be overseeing this commission on[…]
“Require that estate regeneration only takes place where there is resident support, based on full and transparent consultation, and that demolition is only permitted where it does not result in a loss of social housing, or where all other options have been exhausted, with full rights to return for displaced tenants and a fair deal[…]
Yesterday evening, Labour Party members flocked in their hundreds to the elegant and spacious Ristorante Olivelli on Lordship Lane in Dulwich for a jolly fundraiser in support of Sadiq Khan’s candidacy for London Mayor. The Dulwich and West Norwood Gala Fundraising Dinner, hosted by Helen Hayes MP was sold out, although due to a clash in[…]
We all know that there is plenty of legislation out there supposedly to prevent homeowners being ripped off in a council regeneration buyback or compulsory purchase situation. But does that stop the con-men at councils such as Lambeth from trying to part with as little cash as possible when grabbing peoples’ homes? […]
We thought we’d take a peek at what other people thought of their experiences with Savills Estate Agents; after all, it’s not fair to assume Savills is a dodgy company just because of a single newspaper article, exposing them as “deceitful” in a transaction to sell a valuable property. So we checked out a couple[…]
It was recently revealed that Savills have been appointed by Lambeth Council to manage the new privately set up company, “Homes for Lambeth”…..once it has been set up, that is. Out of the approximately £25 million spent by Lambeth so far on various contractors connected with their regeneration plans, Savills are believed to[…]
The call for a vote of no confidence in Lambeth Council just got louder. Respected journalist Jerry Green adds his voice to the call in his open letter published today on the News from Crystal Palace website, following the corrupt manner in which Lambeth squeezed through a vote to demolish Cressingham Gardens in the re-convened[…]
People turned up in their hundreds to witness the cabinet decision over the future of Cressingham Gardens on Monday. It soon became apparent that despite the level of public feeling against the proposed demolition, the council had no intention of backing down. It didn’t take long for the meeting to go into meltdown, at which[…]
