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.
