Do you want your own apartment in London?

I'm really interested in the process of a group of people collaborating to make this happen - particularly in the design/consultation process that this will entail - I think I could bring a lot of experience to this process. I'm quite happy where I live, but if it was the 'right' apartment in the right place (East London) I'd be interested.

Are you earning a decent wage?

Right at this moment, no.

Are you fed up paying sky high rent for a tiny flat?

I pay increasingly exorbitant mooring fees on my Dutch barge, moored on a residential mooring in East London. At current trends, I won't be able to stay in London for many more years.

When you hear people say 'someone should do something about it' do you think 'OK I'll be that someone'

Yes. That's why I stood as a Green Party candidate. That's why I've been chair of the residents' group where I live, and why I built my own house in the 1990's.


I'm Mark. I designed and self-built my own house, then came back to the UK to study architectural technology/design to MSc level. Very interested in genuinely sustainable design. I'm also a Green Party candidate in Tower Hamlets council elections.
