Kerslake Review of strategic delivery of new affordable homes in Lambeth

The Kerslake Review is an independent review aiming to boost the delivery of genuinely affordable housing in Lambeth.

The review, chaired by independent peer Lord Bob Kerslake, has been commissioned to accelerate the delivery of affordable housing in the borough and in particular, homes at social rent which are genuinely affordable for local families on the housing waiting list.

The review will examine two key questions:

  1. How can Lambeth Council and its partners deliver more high-quality affordable homes, more quickly for more people?
  2. How can Lambeth Council and its partners do this and manage the costs of moving to a net zero carbon borough?

The review will assess the existing housing delivery approaches and development pipelines by Lambeth Council, its wholly owned delivery company Homes for Lambeth and how it works with current or potential partners. It will consider how the council can ensure that opportunities and delivery across the borough are accelerated and maximised by working with all partners, including the Mayor of London and public sector partners. It will review best practice from other local authorities to deliver more homes at social rent.

The review will take evidence from across the council, from public and private sector partners and from local residents. It will conclude with a report for the leader of the council, Councillor Claire Holland and the Cabinet Member for Sustainable Growth and New Homes, Councillor Danny Adilypour, due in the autumn of 2022. It will be published alongside the council’s response.
