I somehow got the impression the protest had something to do with the provision of social housing units.
In the event the units are being provided then its hard to see what the fuss is about.

The LCC building would be demolished obviously.

Quite how you can socially cleanse a development that has no housing at all at present was not explained. The argument completely applies to the scandal that was the Heygate redevelopment, but is obviously absurd in this instance.

It was my first impression that the protest was about social housing units not being provided.
There seems to be some confusion in this regard.
Appreciate your clarity.
