Communities influencing & challenging developments in London is a project led by the London Tenants Federation, with cooperation from Just Space and grant support from the Trust for London. It aims to provide a space for community groups to share and exchange around what’s happening in London’s largest development areas (opportunity and intensification areas) and to link groups that are attempting to influence and/or challenge plans for their areas. The project has a web site here.
