Tasks for the workshop

Time Task
10 mins Set the scene – 




Testing the governance advice:




  • Consideration of the way in which decisions can be made and who can be party to making those decisions.
  • Consideration of the legal structure for an overarching body and it’s relationship to organisations responsible for managing the homes, with some consideration of the types of housing organisations in the context of people’s desire for retaining rented homes in perpetuity.


  • What role could a new body have, and what should it do, and be responsible for doing? Is this different in different phases for the Somerleyton Road project?
  • Does the role have implications, such as the contractual relationship with Lambeth; costs such as Stamp Duty Land Tax?


30mins Where will it get an income from - how can it be a sustainable business (not relying on grants from Lambeth)?
