LeftFootForward: "The mayor’s planned estate regeneration schemes will cost London 8,296 social rented homes"

"Mayors and councils have been misleading Londoners for years about affordable housing. When they boast about building new homes, they don’t mention that for every ten homes that have built in the past decade, one has been knocked down and four have been sold through Right to Buy.

"I've long supported campaigns against the unnecessary demolition of council estates like the Heygate in Elephant & Castle, the Carpenters in Stratford, the Gibbs Green and West Kensington estates in Earl’s Court.

"These are knocked down in order to ‘regenerate’ the area, but have been vigorously opposed by tenants and leaseholders, and by a growing movement that came together to march on City Hall on 31 January.

"Last week the London Assembly's Housing Committee, which I chair, published a landmark report 'Knock It Down or Do It Up?' taking stock of all these estate regeneration schemes."
