Public inquiry into council’s home buy-outs on Aylesbury Estate

A four day public inquiry into the compulsory purchase of properties on the Aylesbury will come to an end tomorrow.

The Aylesbury Leaseholders Action Group is objecting to the forced sale of flats to Southwark Council, enabling the demolition of the estate on the grounds that it is “forcing us out to make way for luxury housing that none of the existing tenants or leaseholders will be able to afford.”

A planning inspector has been hearing testimonies from expert witnesses and will consider statements put forward by the objectors and Notting Hill Housing Trust and Southwark Council. He will then submit a report to the Secretary of State for Communities, who will have the final say on whether the compulsory purchase orders for the £750million scheme can go ahead.
