Hi Lyn
Can you tell me if community led housing projects are feasible/realsitic in central(ish) London boroughs or is the cost of land just too high?
Thanks!

Community led housing projects are possible in London, though of course the cost of land often presents a real problem. One of the ways round this is to work with the local authority to try and achieve an asset transfer of land or more probably, properties. These can then be refurbished. You might be interested in following the work of London Neighbourhood Communities Co-operative who are trying to overcome some of these issues by getting influencers and decision makers to do something about it. http://www.lcnc.org.uk/
