A constituent has contacted me regarding development plans at the Central Hill Estate in Lambeth, raising concerns that the Council appears to have no plans to hold an estate ballot over the proposed demolition and rebuild, despite a Freedom of Information request revealing that GLA grant funding is being used for the scheme, and no ballot exemption for the estate being listed on the GLA website. Could you provide residents with assurances and plans for what action you will take if Lambeth Council does not carry out an estate ballot?

There is no ballot exemption because the allocation for this regeneration in the 16-23 Programme has been handed back. There is an allocation in the 21-26 programme, which has the ballot condition attached. In the event that this ballot does not happen, funding will be withdrawn.
