Save our Island Homes, Sept 2015

'Save our Island homes'

Amalia

Housing Association One Housing Group (OHG) is feeling the pressure of the organised residents' Save Our Island Homes Campaign on four estates in the Isle of Dogs, east London.

OHG has been circulating a "myth-busting" letter trying to reassure the residents about Project Stone, (according to which about 2,000 homes across four estates will be "redeveloped" and 9,000 new homes will be built. But only 30% will be given back as 'affordable' housing, see the Socialist issues 866 and 867).

As one resident said: "If Mick Sweeney's (chief executive of OHG) trying to make amends he's really going about it in the wrong way, he's showing his contempt for local people."

Labour's Tower Hamlets Mayor, John Biggs, and the council, have come out against OHG proposals. They have suspended OHG as "preferred partner" of the council, which is a good first step.

To support the council's opposition we aim to show the strength of feeling of residents on this issue by holding a lobby of the next full council meeting on 16 September.

We will be calling on the Mayor and council to:

Please come and demonstrate to our elected representatives what you think about the OHG plan.

Lobby of Tower Hamlets council: Wednesday 16 September 2015, 6-7:30pm
Town Hall, Mulberry Place, 5 Clove Crescent, E14 2BG
