Two years after the Grenfell tragedy we are changing our whole culture to put the needs of communities first and better engage with our residents, especially those who live in more deprived parts of the borough. We are now reorganising our senior team to look at creative and imaginative ways of generating more social and affordable housing and maximising benefits for all of our communities.

We are determined to take a ground-breaking approach to investment based on delivering social and community benefits. These are principles that we want to apply to every investment that the Council makes, not just within the social housing context. Whilst there are a clear set of professional requirements that need to be delivered within this portfolio including capital works and land valuations, we are seeking a Director who will ensure that the needs of our communities and the public interest always come first.
