1. Protect Council Homes in Hammersmith and Fulham

Residents of the council estates across the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham are appalled to hear of the Council's plans for selling these estates to private property developers for supposed 'regeneration', which would involve widespread demolition.

The consequences for this area of such radical action would be disastrous. Our concern is that residents, many of whom have lived on the estates for many years and have strong links with neighbours, friends and family in the area, would be forcibly relocated and excluded from the benefits of any redevelopment.

This would be an absolute travesty at a time when the importance of community is being so widely acknowledged.
