Baltimore Consulting are excited to be working in exclusive partnership with Lampton D&I  as we seek to appoint their new Development Director to the team.
Lampton D&I are a part of the Lampton360 Group of Companies, owned by and providing services for London Borough of Hounslow. They build, buy and manage homes to meet London Borough of Hounslow’s growth ambition and housing needs. They were established in 2017 and have delivered some strong results, they have also learned along the way.

In March 2021, London Borough of Hounslow Cabinet approved an exciting new Business Plan for Lampton D&I.  Lampton D&I are on track with delivering this plan. They have achieved planning permission, have completed new homes, are buying homes at volume and are finalising a sector leading grant agreement with the GLA.
