Things to look at

The image to the left has been lifted from Southwark Council 2009-2016 Housing Strategy summary (download as PDF  here). It features on the page 14. entitled 'Our Vision' under which they state the following:

The overarching vision for the Southwark Housing Strategy 2009 to 2016 is:

“To improve residents’ lives by providing high quality homes and housing services that promote successful and inclusive communities.”

To achieve our vision we have agreed four strategic objectives. These are to:

1 - Improve the quality of existing housing and use it more efficiently
2 - Increase the supply of good quality housing
3 - Enable choice while meeting housing needs
4 - Prevent homelessness and reduce the use of temporary accommodation.

Certainly, there is a lot to be said on the bizarre position of these objectives next this super enhanced image of the Strata tower...

I don't have time to go through all of it right now, but document details the housing plans for the whole borough and has some interesting 'facts' and 'figures' and layouts that we might find useful.

Also if people haven't seen it, there's a advertisement 'movie' on the Strata London website which is, quite simply, wonderful.
