Victory for Carpenters Estate campaigners

Issue No. 2353

University College London and Newham council have abandoned plans to bulldoze the Carpenters Estate in Stratford, east London.

It was due to make way for a £1 billion university campus.

This is a victory for residents of the estate who have campaigned with University College London students to stop the redevelopment and keep their homes.
