Guinness trust estate campaign continues in Brixton [video]

Guinness Trust, Somerleyton Rd, Brixton fights the landlords

Here’s the second part of the award winning ‘9 stories Brixton’ film about a residents group on the Guinness trust estate in Brixton (see part one here).

The Trust plans to ‘redevelop’ the estate, demolish the current buildings and evict a third of the residents in the process – even though the majority of residents voted against the plans.

The residents are now barred from using the estate’s community meeting room and have to meet outside the hall to discuss their concerns.

This is footage from┬átheir last meeting before the Guinness Trust’s plans are put before Lambeth councils planning committee.
