Hawkins\Brown’s Alton Estate demolitions criticised as ‘heartbreakingly short-sighted’


Wandsworth Council claims that the scheme has been developed 'in full consultation' with the local community. Yes there have been lots of consultations, but only one since 2014. Each time the locals asked for well loved elements of the estate to be kept. Each successive scheme meant more demolition. Hawkins Brown may have answered the brief they were given, but it is definitely NOT what the community (most of whom will have to leave) may have asked for.
