Lewisham Council: Develop Besson Street for local housing needs

Reason for signing

  • This is an example of asset stripping pure and simple. The site did, till about ten years ago, contain council housing. Once upon a time Lewisham Labour conducted elections with the slogan "Vote Labour against Tory cuts" ! What a hollow promise that was ! Whatever happened to councils providing homes at appropriate standards. some such developments won architectural awards and still stand as reminders of what genuine municipal enterprise should look like.( Read Owen Hatherley).
