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...

Can this be done via telephone?

What qualifies as a recent-mover and does it have to be in a new building?

Hello Carmenes82,

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.

OK - I'm a young male who moved to Bermondsey 18 months ago so hopefully I can Balance your study our a bit!

I've sent you a PM.

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.
