Concrete Soldiers – Saving Britain’s Council Estates and Social Housing from the Developer Philistines

Concrete Soldiers – Saving Britain’s Council Estates and Social Housing from the Developer Philistines

Three years ago I was looking at all the new developments in London and was surprised to see how much of the construction happened on old council estate land.

I started wondering why the councils wanted to sell off their valuable assets and whether there were alternatives…. That’s how Concrete Soldiers UK began…

– Three years later and Concrete Soldiers UK is not only answering my questions but it has also become a film about the fighting spirit that I encountered on the way.

I was so impressed by people and their tireless campaigning in situations which often ended with a negative outcome. It’s easy to see why people would become discouraged and just give up. But some haven’t and some even managed to succeed in their campaigns. That’s what Concrete Soldiers UK is all about.

There has been no funding for this project and there is no-one who is looking to profit from this film. My main objective is to make it accessible to as many people as possible, so there will be a download link available in the future.

Until then keep checking our social media or this website for updates. And please do arrange your own screening. This film was made for sharing,
