(en) Britain, classwar: Get SaVILLAINS out of Lambeth! 11am @ Savills SW11 6PL, July 30, 27th July 2016

Date Tue, 2 Aug 2016 17:08:52 +0300


for information… from https://www.facebook.com/events/1094470863940617/ ---- Savills are a major international development company and estate agents. Their interest in property is how best to turn private profit out of it. So why are Savills writing housing policy for the Government? And why are they in charge of setting up Lambeth Council’s new housing companies? ---- JOIN US TO DEMAND AN END TO SAVILLS’ RELATIONSHIP WITH LAMBETH COUNCIL ON HOUSING AND TO SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THEIR ROLE FUELLING THE HOUSING CRISIS. ---- Melissa Madjitey is an Associate Director of Savills. Until a few months ago she was also the Vice-Chair of Lambeth’s leasehold Council! She only resigned from the leasehold council after she was appointed as the Project Manager of Savills’ consultancy contract with Lambeth Council. A number of Lambeth residents complained that Madjitey, who was also chair of the Major Works Committee and the Brixton Area forum, had used these positions to influence council housing policy and to secure a commercial advantage when bidding for the contract. Lambeth have simply ignored these complaints and Neil Vokes from Lambeth Council justified the lack of public scrutiny be saying that ‘no residents were involved in the procurement of this deal as it was too technical.’

Savills have no interest in supporting social housing tenants or leaseholders, the thousands of people on the housing waiting list, or those who are being priced out of buying or renting privately in Lambeth. Savills are openly in favour of regeneration projects that raise house prices in the surrounding area and lead to gentrification. They shamelessly campaign for the transfer of more public housing and public land into private ownership.

Melissa Madjitey and Savills have no place in Lambeth’s ‘Co-operative’ Council and should withdraw from the contract immediately. Lambeth Council should hold an emergency public conference to consult with RESIDENTS, NOT DEVELOPERS on tackling our borough’s housing crisis.
