Votes for residents on estates facing regeneration

This petition made change with 1,715 supporters!

In recent years, London has seen a number of estates undergo 'regeneration'. Many of these have resulted in demolition, the loss of much needed social homes, and the displacement of communities.

Sadiq Khan has released a ‘Draft Good Practice Guide to Estate Regeneration’, but as it stands none of the most important safeguards are enshrined. It should be a basic democratic right that people living on estates facing regeneration should get to have a vote on the different plans.

We call on Sadiq Khan to require that regeneration takes place ONLY when there is resident support. Councils must BALLOT their residents, ensuring everyone gets a VOTE in the future of their home.

As the mayor promised in his manifesto, regeneration should only go ahead with majority resident support.

  • Do not demolish good homes
  • All residents must have final say via ballot on any regeneration/demolition plan
  • Rents need to stay at council 'social' rent levels
  • Right of return must be contractually enforceable 
  • All financial and technical information about estates to be made public
  • Leaseholders must have a right to return or receive full market value of their property
