The Derwent Dystopia: guided walk

A guided trek around the neighbourhood to see how it is changing — and not for the better.

Derwent London CCTV.

The Derwent London Dystopia awaits you all. They’ll be watching us.

Join this walk which looks at how the buildings, residential community and whole neighbourhood is undergoing rapid change. Find out about the influence of property developers (not just Derwent) Crossrail, dodgy councils, parasites, public relations companies and even a few who should know better. 

Learn about the connection between Derwent London, Dukelease Properties, and Camden Council, with the destruction of the oldest building on Goodge Street.

Find out more about Exemplar’s huge development at the centre of the neighbourhood and where else their greedy tentacles are entwined.

And what’s going in Cleveland Street with Westminster City Council’s nasty Tories? Why do we refer to Camden Council as “Useless Camden”?

Discover why not enough affordable housing and public open space is being delivered, why there is a business improvement district in this the strangest of London barrios, and why does a hospital charity dump its staff on the streets.

If you live, work, visit Fitzrovia or thinking of living here. This is an essential guide to the ruins of a well-loved neighbourhood.

Led by Fitzrovia News editors and based on Fitzrovia News investigations.
