Frequently Asked Questions

We appreciate that you may have a number of questions about the wider Your New Town Hall project, as well as more site-specific queries connected to the current construction works on the Olive Morris House site (and Covid-19). We have therefore sought to address both of these within this FAQ page.

Olive Morris House construction

We know that local residents have a great number of questions relating to the construction works at Olive Morris House but also about the impact of Covid-19 on working practices. We have sought to answer some of these questions in the form of an FAQ document.

As the works progress and the questions evolve, we will seek to issue updated editions of the FAQs document as and when new queries come to us. Please find below the latest edition of this document.


You can still refer to the below documents which are the previous editions of these FAQs in response to queries at the time of issue.


If you have any further questions when you have had a chance to view the FAQs, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team – contact details are provided at the bottom of this page.

Who is funding the YNTH project?

Your New Town Hall will pay for itself through the redevelopment of old office buildings (that are too expensive to run) into much needed new homes for the borough.

What is Muse’s role?

Muse Developments is one of the country’s leading names in mixed-use development and urban regeneration, with regional operations in Leeds, Manchester, London, and Glasgow. Muse is part of Morgan Sindall Group plc, a leading UK construction and regeneration group.

Who are the contractors on the project?

There have been different contractors on the various elements of the Your New Town Hall project, all chosen by Muse Developments and Lambeth Council on the basis of their track record for professionalism, health and safety and programme delivery.

The contractor appointed to carry out the main construction works of Olive Morris House is McAleer & Rushe, overseen by Muse Developments.

All main contractors must be part of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and comply with the highest regulations for site safety.

What is the Considerate Constructors Scheme?

Considerate Constructors Scheme logoThe Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is a national initiative set up by the construction industry. Sites and companies that register with the scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The scheme focuses on any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole.
