London Assembly Member Sian Berry visited the estates on 24 August to learn more about our People’s Plan. She said: “The People’s Plan clearly demonstrates that residents, with support, are capable of creating good regeneration alternatives to demolition. The plan not only proposes 250 additional homes but they improve existing estates without destroying perfectly good family homes. It is important that demolition is not the only option when regenerating an area. Residents and communities should not have to be needlessly displaced when there are other options.”

I would like to see the mayor, the council and the residents’ organisations working together to produce an alternative to Capco’s masterplan.”

Meanwhile, individual residents are stepping forward with their own reasons for supporting the People’s Plan:
