Housing Coops covered by the BBC & South London Press


Thanks to everyone who attended the photo call to save Lambeth’s housing co-operatives on Wednesday. The turnout was good and the media attention was great, with a half page article in the South London Press.

We also got on the BBC, in particular:

  • We were mentioned frequently on BBC Radio London News. See for example, this link to the drive time program, about 1hr 8 minutes in (link expires on 12th March)
  • We got an article on the BBC news website, see here

Various other local news outlets covered the story, including South London Guardian and This is Local London

There are photo albums of the day at demotix, photoshelter and via the People’s Republic of Southwark

These articles raise some important issues. There’s a post on the Lambeth United Housing Co-operative website to discuss them.

Thanks to everyone for making this day such a success.
