The Lampton Group of companies are owned by the London Borough of Hounslow and, therefore, by the residents of Hounslow. The Lampton Group operates commercially but with a public service ethos – following the principles of social value, community wealth building, equality, social justice and environmental sustainability. The Group measures its success both commercially and by the positive outcomes it delivers for the people of Hounslow.
With a new Chair appointed towards the end of 2021, it is an exciting time for the Group and we are current seeking to appoint a new Member of our Development and Investment Board. Development and Investment at Lampton has three key aims: to return capital receipts (surplus) from property development that meets LB Hounslow housing requirements; to establish a residential property portfolio that provides homes in line with LB Hounslow housing requirements and that represents a strong commercial investment; and to act as quality exemplar for LB Hounslow demonstrating capability in urban regeneration, design quality, sustainability and supporting the local economy.
In particular, we are embarking on an ambitious growth plan which will see us doubling our property portfolio to around 1000 by the end of 2023 and adding circa 400 properties per annum beyond that. We are also acutely aware that with the cost of living crisis, we need to support our tenants and offer them the best possible value for money.
Chaired by Tony Middleton, the D&I Board is tasked with strategic oversight of these aims and ambitions. We are currently seeking a new Board Member with a landlord or property background, ideally from a local authority or RSL, as well as an understanding of the role of a board member in terms of offering appropriate governance and oversight. This is a great opportunity to support the work of a dynamic, commercial and growth-oriented organisation with strong public sector values.
