Neighbourhood for Sale: a short documentary

Watch our new documentary exploring how gentrification is affecting St Pauls

St Pauls is changing. A stone’s throw from the centre, it’s become a prime target for property developers. Poorer families are being moved out as more expensive flats and businesses move in.

Watch our new short documentary now to find out what local residents, developers and business owners have to say on how they’re being affected by rapidly rising house prices.

What do you think of the changing face of St Pauls?
