Developers alarmed at Khan's plans to give estate residents power


Trouble is, as anyone who has lived in a Council house/flat or even a RTB leasehold Council property will know, Councils are just another landlord. They see "Estate Regeneration" as a way to extract money from an estate by building more for-sale flats/houses. Problems raised by Kellett such as poor design, poor maintenance, and poor first time renovation were all at the hands of the council landlords. So why expect tenants to rush to accept proposals to demolish their estate, re-house them for a coupe of years, and maybe bring them back at higher rents. The politics is definitely IN the game, and Kellet's attitude is unhelpful. Finch's idea that architects should be the persuaders forgets that architects are not working for the tenants, but for the landlords and do not call the design shots, and secondly their housing record is not good.
