This ‘Southall Centre is Changing’ video features local activist/campaigner Oliver New who has lived in Southall for over 40 years. He points out that the level of demolition, residential development and depletion of community services has reached extreme levels. Tragically, local housing needs are not being and will not be met with the hundreds of luxury flats being built in numerous high rise tower blocks. 3,750 new homes are planned on the poisonous Gas Works site. Local residents are suffering illnesses related to the contaminated soil and are understandably up in arms about this.
