Thank goodness this Elephant and Castle development has progressed. All the residents have been given notice and its a huge positive that all of these hideous buildings are now being demolished.
People are complaining that its awful that these council residents have been moved on but we the tax payers pay for the privilege to house these people who have decimated and ruined this area....
Of course people have to be re homed but the area is being re generated so of course you dont want the same people back in....

As much as I am all for the renovation, it generates a problem for the people who had to move. Have they been placed somewhere else, or were they simply evicted?

They have all been rehoused. The chief complaint is that it's taken so long and that it does not have enough new social housing in it and too much private housing.

I always try to avoid this neighbourhood. It makes me feel depressed.

It's not that bad actually. A friend lives close to this area and when I visit london I always have to walk trough this area to get to the underground. I guess you can take the bus but even at night it was quite save to walk there (or I was just lucky )

Great comment. From what I've seen I think the redevelopment is very poor, could almost be a rehash of what is there now. I've a feeling this will be done on the cheap but will still cost a fortune. Not inspiring.
