Some residents have mentioned hearing about a book regarding gentrification of council estates and what can be done about it. We think the book being referred to is titled “Staying Put: An Anti-Gentrification Handbook for Council Estates in London”.
The book is located on the Southwarknotes website and it is about the following;
“ This handbook explains why the regeneration of council estates often results in established communities being broken up and moved away, and housing becoming more expensive. It is designed to help local communities learn about gentrification and the alternatives they can fight for. Through the experiences of council tenants, leaseholders and the wider community in London, it contains ideas, stories, tools and resources”.
