Clip 1: Inner city slum clearance after the war. Building pre-fabricated houses was an early plan, and widespread development of council estates followed.

Clip 2: 1960’s high rise redevelopment in Sheffield replaced terraced housing.

Clip 3 Affordable housing built by private developers and Housing Associations is replacing council housing.
