What area do you live in? Presumably the majority of those who have moved out where home owners or private renters?

The posh streets around where my mum lives hasn't seen huge changes and I can't image certain parts of Stockwell Park estate have. However the huge amount of new builds are bringing in new residents and the revamping of parts of Stockwell Park Estate and Wayland house will have undoubtedly moved out council tenants- it would be interesting to know how many will return - historically I get the impression that post redevelopment, a good percentage of ex-residents don't return.

If Wayland House becomes posh i will have lived through change thought unimaginable even by fantasists.

No.

well its been pulled down now and a bigger tower will go up. I'm not sure how many ex-residents will move in. I think Stockwell Park estate will become a place of sharp contrasts with the comfortably-off living next to council tenants.

it's been demolished and is slowly rising again it's own footprint, I think as part of The Park redevelopment

Wow, it kind of needed knocking down thirty years ago. Must take a stroll along Robsart street during the week.

No.
Is Robsart street Classed as Brixton or Stockwell ?
Well, in the past, the oval end of Brixton road has been called North Brixton. The boundaries of Brixton are a little unclear. Going by earlier maps, the area near Stockwell Green is original Stockwell and older than Brixton. However the Old white horse is referred to as being in Brixton rather than Stockwell. And Stockwell now seems to stretch down to Larkhall Park.

A right can of worms then.

Well, you may be interested to know that gentrification hasn't reached our bit of Brixton Hill and is unlikely to for quite some time. New Park Rd and the surrounding areas are a diverse mix of Somali, Irish, working class, middle class, Jamaican, British, West African, Polish etc. I think that distance from tubes/trains plays a large part in this.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you have seen for yourselves the proliferation of eau de nil paint jobs in the roads surrouding New Park Rd, yet despite this *obvious* evidence of guilt, the defendent continues to protest their innocence of the abominable crime of gentrification.

Hello,
I am a french journalist, who happen to be working in London this week, and I am super interested in knowing more about the rise against gentrification in Brixton. I'd be happy to meet people who participated to the demonstration you made last year and/or who are active in that community. Best best, Anna

One street I noticed full of posh white kids was Ferndale Road...
