An article in The Times (p35) examines progress of a Housing Act Trust on a Waltham Forest estate that involves the demolition of tower blocks and their replacement with brick built houses.

Ownership of the flats was transferred from Waltham Forest LBC to the HAT in April 1992. Phase one has been completed with residents of a run-down 24 storey block now happily moved into 170 new ground floor houses. One innovation has been the transfer in a single move tenants straight from the old flats into their new homes.

The scheme is perhaps the most ambitious in the country, with £250m being spend over ten years to rehouse 6,500 people in 1,690 houses.
