Gentrification, displacement, and the impacts of council estate renewal in 21st-century London

This project will explore the effects of gentrification in London. Researchers will investigate how tenants have been affected by displacement in the wake of council estate renewal and redevelopment, and they will also analyse the impact those people have on the relocation sites that they eventually move to. The project team has three aims. The first is to quantitatively measure and map the extent, location and kinds of neighbourhood-level social change and displacement associated with estate renewal and gentrification more generally in the capital. The scholars will also generate a historical inventory of all council estate renewal proposals, plans and final outcomes, which they will use to evaluate their aggregate impact on housing stocks and the availability of social housing in Greater London. Finally, they will consider the impact of estate renewal programmes on pre-existing council estate residents, the communities across the South East to which they are being displaced, and the new “mixed” communities that are emerging as a consequence of estate renewal projects.
