Co-operatives and the Olympic Legacy

We are thinking about having a Housing Co-op as part of Rooms of our Own – so went along to hear the famous John Hands (instigator many co-op initiatives in UK) and also some ex-residents speak about Cl

ays Lane. I had no idea that over 500 people were living in the Clays Lane Housing Co-op on the Olympic site, and that they were all evicted to make way for the Games …. very sad that one of the few different models of housing lost and no plans to give us a legacy by replacing it…..
