As previously reported on Vassall View plans for the regeneration of the estate have been in development for several years.

Councillor Lib Peck,  Lambeth's cabinet member for housing, said: “Residents have worked closely with the council to devise a scheme that will transform the estate bringing huge benefits to local people for generations to come. I am delighted that we have taken a major step forward with this scheme to allow work to begin on site for the transformation to begin.”

Viveen Blair-Rodney, chair of the Myatt’s North tenant management organisation welcomed the announcement saying “The life changing benefits that this PFI project will deliver means so much to this community. We have been involved since it began in 2004 and have worked very hard since then, giving up huge amounts of our time to try and secure better homes and a community that people want, and are proud to live in. It is now vital that we, as residents, have consistency and continuity as this exciting and life changing
project takes place”.
