The Leader of the Council, Cllr Lib Peck, is co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership which oversees the regeneration of the area. Council officers attend working groups on all aspects of regeneration, such as public realm.
With local people’s help, we produced the Vauxhall Supplementary Planning Document (2013) which provides a guide for development in the area. Our planning team makes sure that applications from developers comply with planning policies, respond to local concerns and lead negotiations with developers on s106 planning obligations.
Our jobs brokerage team, Lambeth Working, will be making sure that local people have access to job and training opportunities.
We are coordinating a programme for the borough’s schoolchildren to take part in work-related activities and other projects.
