Sweets Way: Housing Campaigners Create ‘People’s Show Home’

On Sunday I went to visit Sweets Way, a former social housing estate in Barnet, which is due for demolition and rebuilding. Housing campaigners have occupied some of the empty houses and created their own show home to demonstrate that refurbishing a property can be both sustainable and economic.

Talking to the campaigners and being given a guided tour of the camp and show home was fascinating and I very much appreciated them giving up a couple of hours to talk to me. Big thanks also to Tom Chance AM for helping arrange my visit, and former Green candidate for Chipping Barnet, A.M. Poppy for introducing me to the campaigners. Read more about this on Londonist.
