Campaigners Carpenters Against Regeneration (CARP) have fiercely opposed the council’s decision to demolish and re-house residents rather than pay for refurbishments and the UCL partnership struck in October last year prompted protests outside the Town Hall.
Chairman Osita Madu said: “It’s good in the sense that we don’t want UCL to have the land and get rid of residents.
“But this means people now face further uncertainty about what will happen to their homes.
“I think CARP now need time to digest this information and decide how we move forward.
“But it’s a lesson for Newham Council and UCL about how they engage with the community.”
