Phase two of Robin Hood Gardens replacement gets go-ahead


Can anyone explain why only 50% of the new homes will be affordable? Weren't all the previous homes on this site affordable? If a housing association, whose remit is to provide affordable housing (someone correct me if I'm wrong) has to make 50% of the new housing stock unaffordable - presumably to help finance the affordable homes - then what does that say for our society, is it right that so much of the replacement housing stock is not just unaffordable, it's an internationally traded commodity? Regeneration or degeneration?
