London Mayor consults on regeneration
The Mayor of London has issued a draft Good Practice Guide to Estate Regeneration. Comments are invited up to 14 March deadline. Tenants groups and campaigners are dismayed that the Mayor's draft provides little protection to those whose homes are threatened by regeneration schemes.
Mayor Sadiq Khan promised in his election manifesto that he would: 'require that estate regeneration only takes place where there is resident support, based on full and transparent consultation, and that demolition is only permitted where it does not result in a loss of social housing, or where all other options have been exhausted, with full rights to return for displaced tenants and a fair deal for leaseholders.' Residents from threatened estates and housing campaigners at Demolition Watch London are calling on the Mayor to amend his guidance to ensure:

" Do not demolish good homes
" All residents must have final say via a ballot on any regeneration/demolition plan
" Rents need to stay at council social rent levels
" Right of return must be contractually enforceable
" All financial and technical information about estates to be made public
