Have Yourself A Very Rocky Christmas!


Season’s greetings from the Grenfell Action Group! The mocked up christmas card that we have chosen to illustrate this little blog is, of course, intended to lampoon the RBKC Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing Property and Regeneration, Rock Feilding-Mellen, whose recent exploits will ensure that many residents of the Royal Borough’s council housing estates are unlikely to fully enjoy the peace and security they might have hoped for, given that Rocky and his mates are planning radical changes in the name of REGENERATION to the estates and communities in which they live – changes involving demolition and rebuild at greater density to provide additional private housing (for those who can afford it), massive disruption and destruction of existing communities, and the displacement of many social tenants and the many leaseholders who had availed themselves of the ‘right-to-buy’ the social housing they had previously rented, and which they will soon be forced to sell (or suffer compulsory purchase) to make way for the new ‘mixed communities’ that are planned and new luxury accommodation for the rich.
