Evening Standard: "Earls Court demolition ‘is social cleansing’"


Link to Evening Standard

"Two west London housing estates and the Earls Court exhibition centre are to be demolished, after an £8 billion regeneration scheme was given the go-ahead.

"Residents accused Hammersmith and Fulham council of 'social cleansing', as outline planning permission for the development was granted at a stormy meeting last night.

"Under the scheme, based on a masterplan by architect Sir Terry Farrell, 761 homes will be bulldozed, as well as Earls Court. The council has promised residents will get contracts guaranteeing them a new home on the 57-acre development, and compensation."
