126. After Grenfell and advanced Sheffield
In the early hours of 14 June 2017, a fire broke out in a west London tower block; 72 people died in the resulting conflagration, many of them, tragically, because they had followed the official safety instructions to remain in their homes.At the time the Grenfell fire felt like a turning point in Britainâ€™s attitude to social housing. Two years on, though, precious little seems to have changed.Stuart Hodkinson, an associate professor at the University of Leeds, has spent a decade talking to estate residents about their experience of regeneration and maintenance of social housing estates at the hands of private firms. He tells me how a disaster like Grenfell could have come to happen â€“ and whether something similar could happen again.Also this week: Paul Swinney of the Centre for Cities tells me about Sheffieldâ€™s world-leading Advanced Manufacturing Park, which brings experts from different industries together with academics from the cityâ€™s universities to undertake joint research. The park is already a leader in its field â€“ so can it help pull Sheffield out of its economic doldrums?Skylines is the podcast from the New Statesmanâ€™s cities site, CityMetric. Itâ€™s hosted by Jonn Elledge and produced by Nick Hilton.
