The Guardian: "Earls Court: Tory council signs 'peoples' estates' land deal but anti-demolition fight goes on"


Link to web site

"Conservative flagship council Hammersmith and Fulham has finally signed its deal with property developer Capital and Counties (CapCo) to sell off land containing two housing estates, comprising 760 homes, all of which will be demolished, should the controversial 77-acre Earls Court project redevelopment scheme go ahead.

"What will happen next?

"The anti-demolition campaign, backed by the tenants and residents associations of the two 'Peoples' Estates' - the West Kensington and the Gibbs Green - is considering an appeal against the judge's decision, and argues that in any case this reverse was still a battle worth fighting, in a much longer and larger war of attrition."
