Does anyone know when in Feb the demolition is meant to start? what is happening with the CPO's the council was threatening to get against the remaining tenants?

Pre-demolition work has now started on the Rodney Road and Wingrave blocks (asbestos removal, disconnection of utilities, etc)

Some followers of this thread might be interested in this event at the South Bank next week, which centres on the Heygate:

There'll be a 20-minute audiovisual piece from me; Owen Hatherley will read from his book Militant Modernism; and then there'll be a discussion.
