100 Years of Council Housing (plus!) Bourne Estate, Holborn

Yesterday I went to a Housing & Regeneration Round-table on the Sadiq Khan Labour Mayoral manifesto for the May election with other London Council leads on Housing and regen.

I got lost looking for the venue but in doing so I had my own tour of the Bourne Estate in Holburn which I never knew existed despite cycling past it for many years. I understand that it is the 3rd oldest social housing estate in the country.

The round-table was really interesting and while we came up with lots of "great" ideas for Sadiq, I actually learnt a lot from what other London Labour Boroughs are already doing to tackle our housing crisis.
