Carpenters Estate in Newham is home to around 250 people. The council have began a process of regeneration, and have revealed plans to demolish most of the estate.
The Anti-Gentrification Walk by CARP! aims to generate awareness and support for the struggle being waged by residents of Carpenters Estate.
CARP! has set up this blog as a tool to keep everybody informed on current developments regarding the regeneration of the estate.
