Guinness Trust, Somerleyton Rd, Brixton fights the landlords

Another housing battle is brewing in Brixton, with residents living in and around The Guinness Trust estate uniting against their landlords.

The Guinness Trust are proposing to demolish the estate and rebuild the blocks nine stories high, thereby increasing the capacity of the estate by 30%.

Tenants feel that their concerns about the development are being ignored, and this film documents their efforts to get a fair say in the proposals.
