Tenants from Catford’s Excalibur estate voted for the properties to be demolished and redeveloped. Residents were divided over whether there should be a regeneration of the 187 properties, built by German PoWs in the 1940s. A ballot was held asking them what they wanted to happen to the estate.
More than 56 per cent (114 votes) were in favour of the estate’s regeneration while 89 people were against the proposals and 21 did not vote at all.
Some residents are happy at the outcome admitting that the properties are falling down. Full story News Shopper.
