Evening Standard: "New housing blocks risk repeating errors of the Sixties, Prince Charles warns"

Link to web site

"Prince Charles has warned that the wave of regeneration across London’s run-down areas is in danger of repeating the catastrophic errors of the Sixties and Seventies.

A report published today by a charity set up by the heir to the throne said that ugly, crime-ridden concrete estates are in some cases being replaced by modern housing in 'enormous blocks' that are equally intimidating.

"... The report, from The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, said the so-called 'right to remain' had to be 'an absolutely crucial element of estate regeneration'. [Barnet prefers to force many of the poor out the borough.]

"The research criticised schemes that failed to 'replace social housing one-for-one', which fuelled suspicions that some were developer 'land grabs'." [Hammerson's certainly is at Brent Cross!]
