Examination & Appraisal of Strategic Options

1.16 Although every local area has different needs, characteristics and strategic drivers,

many local authorities now find themselves in a similar position to LB Lambeth and are

actively developing Special Purpose Vehicles to secure much greater direct control

over housing delivery, not only to mitigate the limitations of self delivery but also to

secure new opportunities that are made possible by the powers granted to them in the

Localism Act 2011.

1.17 A review of such approaches and the key lessons that can be learned from what

others are doing (or planning), has actively informed development of the strategic

proposals for Lambeth’s Special Purpose Vehicle. Initiatives reviewed are summarised

in the table below:
