Mapping protest over urban space in London - Martine Drozdz. I started my fieldwork in a context where a London -wide network of activists - Just Space - was being consolidated through the process of the Examination in Public of the London regional strategy (the London Plan). In order to situate historically and geographically this network and other cases of strategic action on which I was working at the time, I started to gather examples of conflicts which had occurred around built environment issues - broadly defined. Trying to put in place a more systematic methodology, I got interested in different online databases which I could access when I was working at The London School of Economics.

I began searching the Evening Standard digital archive and looked for conflicts and campaigns. I did so over a period of roughly 15 years (1998 - 2013). City Farms and community gardens. London Community Food Map. DCLG Community Rights. People around the country value and love the places they live in. They want great local public services, to protect the things that make their neighbourhood special and to help their community grow and develop in the right way. In 2011, the government passed the Localism Act, which gave citizens new legal powers in their communities. Thousands of people, in hundreds of communities, are already using their rights to work together to change their area for the better. This map series shows how communities are using different community rights across England (up to November 2015).
