after the Grenfell fire social cleansing of the area

Hundreds of London families were shipped out of their local area in the four weeks immediately after the Grenfell fire, Freedom of Information requests reveal.

Responses from around half of all London local authorities show that between June 14th 2017 to July 14th 2017, 580 households (not including Grenfell survivors) were moved out of their local borough. 43 of those were sent to towns outside the capital.

That lasted a few weeks. Since then, apart from updates on the Grenfell situation itself, little has been heard about social housing more generally.

For years now, London housing activists have been fighting against the demolition of estates and battling to stop families being housed miles from their local area. A report by the Independent in 2015 showed that 50,000 households had been shipped out of London Boroughs over three years.
