Michelle Edwards launches a Twitter feed about her experiences in one of LBWF’s new low-rise blocks where, as she describes, ‘It has, and continues to be, hell’

Michelle Edwards is a respected local journalist who in the past campaigned on transparency and accountability, while at the same time writing a regular column for the Waltham Forest Echo about what it was like to live through her estate’s regeneration.

More recently, Ms. Edwards has started writing a Twitter feed – https://twitter.com/NewBuildHell – about her move into a new low-rise block and the dispiriting events thereafter. 

Much coverage of such change tends to be sugary, with developers and councils patting each other on the back.

Ms. Edwards peels away the verbiage, and reveals the often harsh truth beyond, and accordingly is well worth reading as a necessary antidote.
