On 4 February 2015, a group of researchers and stakeholders visited three alternative housing sites in south London as part of the LSE London year-long knowledge exchange project, Housing in London: Addressing the Supply Crisis. The group visited Walters Way (a street of self-build units), Featherstone Lodge (site of a future co-housing development) and Havelock Walk (a mews of live/work dwellings) in the Forest Hill area. The site visit followed a workshop which explored how alternative housing can be part of the solution to London's housing supply crisis and offered a chance to see first-hand the potential of and the obstacles faced by alternative housing schemes.
