  • Litro #147: Space - Notting Hill
    a deliberate challenge to the stallholders Another supermarket is the last thing Notting Hill needs within a one kilometre radius are two more Sainsbury s locals and at least three Tescos a mini Waitrose and a Marks and Spencer s A similar story a couple of blocks west to Ladbroke Grove and the famous Kensington Park Hotel pub with a long list of notorious customers including serial killers and fascist leader Oswald Mosley is also under threat For a long time this pub which dates back to the 1860s was one of the few un gentrified establishments in Notting Hill retaining a scruffier old fashioned atmosphere it was what I would call an old man pub the sort of place where faded gents living off their pensions and lonely widowers could be seen enjoying a pint and the papers at eleven in the morning stepping out to smoke to have a chat and blink at the rest of the day An ungentrified space in other words a place for people who don t work in finance or new media a remnant of old Notting Hill But I suppose these sorts of establishments don t make enough money or maximise their revenue potential so the KPH was bought out and put under new management by the Mean Fiddler group and underwent a complete refurbishment Now elegant lettering in the window advertises gourmet hot dogs artisan coffee and wi fi and it seems as if much of the old crowd have gone But at least it s still a pub and it s still called the KPH apparently even this is at risk with the council recently forced to take measures to preserve its status and prevent the site being re developed once again this time as flats I m only able to live in Notting Hill because I m very very lucky and live in my father in laws pied a terre My father in law bought a house in Notting Hill in the seventies when the area was still rough and cheap finally selling in 2005 My wife is a native of Notting Hill and his lived here her whole life although it seems impossible that this will continue forever With one bedroom flats often selling for more than a million pounds only the rich can afford to settle here now As a result I see the same thing happening to houses as has happened to the pubs Larger stucco mansions sub divided into cheap bedsits in the 1960s and 1970s are bought up often by property developers or mysterious off shore companies to sit empty and neglected sometimes for years before the new owner decides what should be done with it The first activity wooden boards will surround the house demarcating the area and then digging demolishing drilling building behind and under sometimes gutting the entire structure just the façade left the two dimensional face of the house windows open to empty sky walls propped up with scaffolding huge

  • Litro #147: Space - The We’eils of Peckham's Gentrification
    wasp nurseries and still ringing with the distant sounds of buzzing gone by Unfortunately some of the residents didn t receive their eviction notices in time and their homes have been brutally ripped away and strewn across the park the contents spilling out onto the grass exposing still ripening larvae cocooned in silk Tiny beetle larvae caught up in the carnage struggle with being exposed to the outside world and succumb to being carried off by ants whilst the centipedes emerge from hiding to see what all the fuss is about The woodlice who occupied the lower floors and have always had their antennae to the ground have already moved their families to another log after realising the beetle larvae neighbours had been eating away at the upper floors and were in danger of being crushed And the common wasps have moved in like bailiffs to pick over the remains and take all the free sawdust to build their nests Soon the developers will move in with a vision of the log as a horizontal city for thousands of insects to live in and enjoy Knowing developers they will probably replace it with a shiny new MDF log complete with layers of impenetrable varnish rendering it totally useless to us beetles Holes drilled in neat and tidy rows inspired by some of those fancy bee hotels will be sold off as ready made bijou homes for the wealthier bees and wasps with a noticeable lack of affordable lignin making it impossible for the hard working mulch munching insects to set up home And they will make it multi functional to include habitats for humans complete with a rooftop picnic area parking for pushchairs and nice tidy planting There is even a new edible hedge stretching all the way along the side of the railway line This regenerated area is a sprawling estate of shiny new shrubs and fruit trees replacing the perfectly established clusters of black horehound thistles and nettles deemed rather unattractive and scythed into oblivion Stylish architectural sculptures of dead wood dot the area no doubt hoping to attract the rather distinguished stag beetle to make a home here At the moment the local insects are not keen on the hedge as it contains plants they have never seen before and as they were never consulted on what plants they would like are rather pissed off Instead they have been converging on a tiny patch of tatty thistles purposely left off the weeding roster and preserved as a nod to the heritage of the area in an act of defiance My cousins the vine weevils have had to find somewhere else to live as their habitat has gone and we really don t know what will happen to the tiny spear thistle lacebugs who have lived in the park for generations It will be interesting to see who moves in or whether it will end up half used and entomologically unloved a moral of regeneration gone wrong And
