UCL is involved in plans to demolish a housing estate next to the Olympic Park to make way for a new campus. The local community are fighting back – but residents have been barred from meetings by private security guards. Both UCL students & staff and residents from Carpenters Estate in Stratford have had little say in the planning process and the provisions made for those who will lose their homes.

This event is a chance for students, staff and residents to meet and discuss the University’s plan – and what we should do about them.
