Lambeth Council has responded to residents at the Cressingham Gardens estate who are campaigning against a plan to demolish their homes.
The council says it wants to build more properties for people who are waiting for homes on its housing register.
Lambeth is committed to good quality housing for all residents and we are looking into how to best fund the urgently needed refurbishment of homes at Cressingham Gardens. Residents have been consulted throughout, and will continue to be fully involved. There are two priorities for Cressingham Gardens - the first is to improve the condition of homes for existing residents. The second is to look at opportunities to create new homes at council rent to help some of the 21,000 people waiting on our housing register - many of whom live in overcrowded conditions.
