During 2014, Lambeth carried out a regeneration assessment across all its estates. This exercise identified the South Lambeth Estate to have the potential to provide new residential development.
PTE was appointed in December 2014 to provide resident engagement and urban design services. The first step was to meet with the existing residents and retail owners to gather information about the Estate from the people who know and understand it best.
PTE’s commission was to work with residents to identify scenarios for providing new homes. These would range from a combination of demolition and in-fill to full scale redevelopment of the estate.
PTE demonstrated that the estate could provide significant numbers of new homes whilst providing better homes for existing residents. We were able to build on the positive aspects of the estate whilst addressing those issues raised by residents that could be improved. The outline masterplan proposals were ratified by Lambeth Cabinet in October 2015 and PTE then produced a Masterplan Objectives document to be issued for development teams to tender on the regeneration proposals.
