In brief: Communities England, London bits, CABE row.
This week we finally expect the launch of the EP/Housing Corp merged body, likely to be named Communities England. Decent Guardian comment here.

Last week Arup finally submitted their planning application for Stratford City.

Inner Court, Joseph Rykwert's last remaining building in the UK, is being threatened with demolition - to make way for a development designed by Norman Foster. The luxury development of 22 flats would replace the modernist housing.

The mega-practice Gensler has accused CABE of not being able to understand its designs - in a row over its proposals for the Blackpool supercasino.

Kensington and Chelsea is set to rethink its controversial 'locals only' policy towards new houses in the borough, after the 'local homes only option' only garnered 24% support in a recent consultation. They recently proposed that all new dewllings could only be inhabited by people who already live in the borough, or who have a connection to it.
