I'm a student in LSE's Cities Programme doing research on the link between the built and social environments, looking specifically at how residents recently-moved to Bermondsey actually live in the spaces designed for them. If you're interested in giving a half-hour recorded interview, the perspective would be invaluable, and will contribute to a larger study which will be published this summer. Thanks in advance for your interest...
Thanks for your interest. Ideally the interview would be in person -- the dynamics of face-to-face lend themselves to more nuanced discussion -- but if you'd prefer by phone, I'd still be happy to proceed that way.
"Recent" is obviously relative; but any time within the last 5 or 10 years would certainly qualify. (So far we've had mostly just long-term Bermondsey residents of 40+ years, i.e. pensioners who grew up where they're living now, so anything more recent would balance out the sampling.) New or old building doesn't matter.

We've just moved from Borough (15 years)to Bermondsey (less than one). We live in a private Victorian terrace & as I've got mobility problems have had some adaptations done to the house. You are welcome to chat.
