ANGRY tenants on Crown Estates across London who are fighting the freehold sale of their homes voted last night to take a petition directly to the Queen. They plan to walk down The Mall next Tuesday to deliver it to Buckingham Palace
ANGRY tenants on Crown Estates across London who are fighting the freehold sale of their homes voted last night to take a petition directly to the Queen.
They plan to walk down The Mall next Tuesday to deliver it to Buckingham Palace after they demonstrate outside the HQ of Crown Estates in Burlington Place, off Regent Street.
A packed protest meeting at a church hall near East London’s Victoria Park rallied support for Tuesday’s protest, planned for 12.30pm, the final day of the Crown Estates’ public consultation on the sell-off.
The meeting at Bethnal Green’s St James-the-Less church hall also voted unanimously to set up a joint organisation of all four residents’ associations on Crown estates at Victoria Park, Camden Town, Pimlico and Lee Green.

The issue has already been raised in Parliament by Bethnal Green & Bow MP George Galloway demanding the Government steps in to bar the sell-off “in the public interest.”
Crown Estate bosses who admit they’ve been swamped with 600 angry letters and phone-calls also came in for a grilling by MPs at a Commons Select Committee.
