The history

The extraordinary tradition of community involvement in the way homes and other facilities on Stockwell Park and neighbouring street properties are managed dates back to 1995, when a group of residents lobbied the Council to agree to the creation of a tenant management organisation (TMO).

A lot has happened since then. Below we look at the incredible history of your community, and how the independence choice may be the next step in a story dating back 25 years.

1995

Residents lobby for the creation of a new TMO. When established it unlocks £20 million of funding from central government and Lambeth Council to kickstart the regeneration of Stockwell Park.

2007

Lambeth Council transfer the Stockwell Park Estate (and neighbouring street properties) to Community Trust Housing (CTH). CTH was a new resident-led and registered housing association, which was a member of the Network Housing Group; a federation of seven housing associations located across London and the Home Counties.

2007-16

For nine years CTH was the landlord, owning and managing the homes on Stockwell Park and associated street properties. Throughout this period, CTH worked in partnership with Network Housing Group to deliver the promised regeneration programme.

2016

SW9 Community Housing is established to work closely with residents and build on the celebrated achievements made by Community Trust Housing and Network Homes.

2016-21

As the housing management organisation for Stockwell Park (and neighbouring street properties), SW9 manage the day-to-day housing services for 1,718 homes on behalf of the landlord – our parent company, Network Homes – supporting the transformation of the estate and securing much needed investment in our blocks and street properties.
