London housing: Lambeth's Pockets of affordability
A new kind of compact home for middle income Londoners looks to be part of the new mayor’s plansIt’s nice to do the Lambeth Walk. Any evening. Any day. On Thursday, the south London street made famous by the musical Me and My Girl was sauntered down by the elite of the capital’s housing geeks – politicians, borough planners, roving consultants - to see a frontier example of old-style, low cost London dwellings accommodating the very newest kind.The China Walk estate was built by the London County Council between 1928 and 1934, its completion achieved just three years before Noel Gay’s hit show was first performed. Today, an extra 70 units are being fitted into two spaces - a former car park and a garage space - among its half-dozen interwar blocks, built in Bedford, brought to the capital by truck and assembled on site at rapid speed.

Without a radical overhaul of transport, UK suburbs face poverty
Too many cars and poor public transport services linking outlying areas to city centres have increased poverty and social isolation in the suburbsAs places to live, the suburbs may not have much cachet, but that has never been their appeal. Out-of-town developments tend to be places city dwellers move to when they have a family. To manage the rent or mortgage, plus the cost of bringing up children, it’s always been essential that travel back to the centre remains quick and easy. Related: How far is too far?

How eco-friendly communes could change the future of housing
An increasing number of US landowners want to build commune-style villages that are completely self-sufficient and have a low carbon footprint When a massive wildfire destroyed more than a thousand homes last year in the bone-dry hills of drought-stricken Lake County, California, about two hours north of San Francisco, Magdalena Valderrama Hurwitz and her husband Eliot were among those made homeless. Eager to transform their tragedy into an opportunity, they got together with a group of neighbors who had also lost their homes and began imagining a different kind of community.

Soho's last stand? Inside the battle to keep Berwick Street market independent
Critics fear Westminster council’s plan to privatise this historic London market risks not only the livelihoods of stallholders but Soho’s distinctive identityThe first time Omar Aljabareen opened his Jerusalem Falafel stall on Berwick Street market in Soho, he sold one wrap all day. “I was alone in my gazebo; I used to go out in the street to offer people a taste,” he recalls. “It was really hard to build up a business – I suffered a lot.”Five years on, the stall employs six people behind the counter, one of whom is stretching dough over a cushion while five more pass the wraps along adding salad, vegetables, tahini sauce. Aljabareen, a 34-year-old Palestinian who studied biotechnology as a postgraduate before moving to the UK, sells around 250 wraps a day, mostly to a queue of office workers plus a handful of residents and tourists exploring the backstreets of London’s West End.Berwick Street is a sort of metaphor for the battle of the soul of Soho Related: Crossrail
