We are a founding member of Gasworks Communities United (GCU), an alliance of communities affected by Berkeley Homes’s development of disused gasworks sites in the UK. We have come together to fight for the safe and community-led development of these sites.
Gasworks Communities United is calling for:
- Tighter regulation of gasworks remediation and independent scrutiny of developers’ strategies, to prevent pollutants becoming airborne and contaminating groundwater
- Detailed health research to assess the redevelopment risks, prioritising vulnerable individuals rather than the normative population
- In-depth consultation with the community on affordable housing, density, height of buildings and infrastructure.
