We are not criminals; we are hard working citizens striving to give our families the best chances we can in a more and more challenging world, and Lambeth Council should be supporting us, not seeking to undermine us and strip us of our homes and security.
Over the years, we have been deceived, we have been lied to and kept in the dark when we should have been informed, we have been harassed and harangued with rules and dictats on a whim and we have been ignored when we should have been consulted.
But if overpaid officials and wet-behind-the-ear councillors think they can use these tactics to take our homes and secure tenancies from us, or steal back the property they sold us in order to profit from it again, pretending all the while to be concerned with our interests, they had better think again.
The only residents they are concerned with are new ones with pocketloads of cash to buy the pokey little houses that Lambeth plan to build in pretty little streets with views across London to die for.
Well, those views are still OUR views, and our homes, for all the issues and problems we have with them, are still OUR homes, and if Lambeth were at all conscientious in their duties to the residents of the Central Hill Estate, and the way they spend our money, those issues and problems would have been long since remedied.
They have spent 40 years neglecting Central Hill, and are now trying to turn that neglect to their advantage. If they succeed, the only losers in all of this, after developers get their cut, dealmakers get their backhanders, Lambeth Council replenish their coffers and a few newcomers get their pretty little houses.....will be us.
They will NOT succeed.
Lambeth have underestimated the strength of spirit, the pride and the determination that lives in this concrete village. As neighbours feuds are forgotten, and young and old find they suddenly have everything in common, the community is becoming an army and we intend to fight till our last breath, not just for our homes but for our rights as citizens and tax payers to say, "NO" to the planned "regeneration" of the Central Hill Estate.

You know, it’s easy to get caught up in all the injustices of a project such as the one Lambeth are planning on the site where Central Hill is currently situated; the attack on the people who live there, the attack on the environment, the failure to GENUINELY consult anyone about what they plan to[…]
This site is not to promote allegiances with any one political party, nor is the writer of this blog a political animal. For me to claim to have any authority to talk about politics, would be like someone who knows not the arse from the nose of a horse offering tips on the Grand National![…]
Most of you are aware that there was recently a scrutiny call-in made by Councillor Tim Briggs on behalf of the residents of The Central Hill Estate.
