Presumably WaltB's idea is for one of the families faced with the compulsory purchase order on the Heygate to buy the lease on the Aylesbury flat, kick the existing tenants out and move in themselves. That hardly seems neighbourly.
But I'm glad you can confirm that the going rate for a two-bedroomed flat in SE1 is less than £150,000 - I thought it was twice that. Perhaps WaltB can advise us of a few more bargains!

If I was in their situation, I would have accepted a fair deal, which this is, a long time ago. Life changes and you move on. Why put the regeneration of an entire area on hold, which will make a difference to thousands of people, for your own sake. We are in a big city and not by ourselves.
Well put, Aaron B. Nice to hear from someone ready to put the interests of the community before their own. I'm sure if you lived in Harmondsworth, Harlington or Stanwell Moor you'd be first in the queue to sell your house for a pittance to make way for a third runway.
