Portobello Housing Co-operative : The First Forty Years, Paperback / softback Book

Portobello Housing Co-operative : The First Forty Years Paperback / softback


The other side of Notting Hill - this is a historical analysis of housing in the North Kensington area of London, from the middle of the Twentieth Century to the present day.

The establishment and development of a Housing Co-operative was central to a radical new form of local social housing. The past four decades of the Co-op's experience is examined alongside a description of vibrant community legal campaigns to improve living conditions. National housing policy is placed in context, as is the recent tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The current housing crisis is nothing new, but lesions can be learnt from the Co-op experience.
