Our Homes Are Under Threat

We are disgusted to discover that Hammersmith and Fulham Council have been in secret talks to demolish our homes with St. Martins, a property speculator owned by the State of Kuwait.

Our Council’s official line is “there are no firm re-development plans for Ashcroft Square” as yet. But, as reported in the London Informer, we know the following to be true:

  • A Conservative councillor and two council officers flew to Cannes on the French Riviera (at our expense) to discuss knocking down our homes with St. Martins.
  • The Council is also in talks with speculators to knock down another 7 estates which will mean moving over 5000 people out of their homes.
  • The Conservative run Council is selling off all council homes on streets instead of re-letting them to people on the waiting list.
  • The Council now refuses to grant planning permission for any new affordable rented housing.

  • So… the question is: where will they put us all?... There will not be anywhere in Hammersmith and Fulham for us to live!!!

    1. Well done Ashcroft Square! We will be very pleased to join you in your struggle to save your homes. Ordinary people are strong when they stick together and fight for what is right. Good luck.
