An article in The Guardian reports on growing protests against plans to build thousands of new council homes on green spaces and existing estates in London.

Local authorities need to build desperately needed homes for social rent but they are facing resistance on the streets and in the courts, as council residents fight the destruction of communal gardens in dense and polluted areas.

The article reports on a number of incidents, including protests to developments proposed by Southwark, Brent and Lewisham councils.
