This page has links to groups, campaigns etc in London.
Groups which are members of Just Space are also listed on the members page here. Among those member-groups, the London Tenants Federation comprises council (and some housing association) tenant groups across London, many of which also represent leaseholders in council property. It also includes coops and TMOs. The London Forum of Civic and Amenity Societies is an umbrella group for hundreds of local societies and has a very active and informative web site and occasional twitter feed.

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 had a web site but it lapsed. Effectively replaced by EstateWatch (see above).
