Today I removed my campsite from the postgraduate kitchen – its time there has come to a natural end I think. The tent will reappear somewhere else soon for a new purpose.
One of the themes of the campsite was ‘common ground’ – thinking about communally used spaces and their potential, so I thought it would be fitting to end my occupation realistically: with the sell-off of the space to property developers.
Not For You Properties Ltd (a subsidiary of Salt The Earth Capital Management) have purchased the site and are planning to redevelop the postgraduate kitchen into 27 one-bed luxury apartments. A ‘consultation’ will be held, but the decision is already made.
