"Sadiq Khan today set out plans to put local people, not buildings, at the heart of his estate regeneration plans. 

"The Mayor published draft guidelines for all new developments which suggest that Londoners should be involved in shaping proposals from an early stage.

"The plans, drawn up with boroughs, housing associations and residents' groups, recommend tenants get full rights to be rehoused on their estates after they have been modernised.

"City Hall aims to avoid the type of controversy that surrounded regeneration schemes such as Heygate Estate and Earl's Court, [not to mention Barnet's corruption around Brent Cross] in which residents claimed they were being forced out."
