We’re proud of Lewisham’s diversity and our distinct and dynamic communities. A borough of sanctuary, we have a history of welcoming migrants and refugees, which reflects our values of fairness, equality and putting our residents at the heart of everything we do. We’re equally proud of the talent and activism that ripples through Lewisham, we’re a hotbed of arts and creativity and excited to be London Borough of Culture 2022.
As a Council, we are leading a bold and radical change manifesto to change how we work and ensure all of our residents can benefit from, and contribute to, London’s future prosperity. The inequalities we have seen widening in society are more apparent than ever before and now is the time to take stock. We are determined to ensure that investment and growth benefits our communities that need it most.
With responsibility for a wide range of agendas that will change our residents’ lives, our new Executive Director will continue to make Lewisham a place our residents love to live. You will lead on our ambitious new housing targets, support our vibrant high streets and night-time economy and ensure we become a greener, healthier place by leading the way in responding to the global climate emergency.
