More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Oppose the anti-squatting law

Squatter's Action for Secure Homes

The UK government is planning to criminalise squatting in residential buildings despite 95% of responses to the 'consultation' opposing any further legislation.
The proposed legislation will have impacts on the most vulnerable people in society, will empower unscrupulous landlords and will burden the justice system, police and charities.
The Squash campaign provides resources on these impacts to raise awareness on the matter.
