Angry Sands End residents have been told they will not be allowed to return to their H&F Homes estate in Fulham.
The meeting at the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Stephendale Road, Fulham, was held after Hammersmith and Fulham Council decided to go ahead with the plans to bulldoze the 80 homes in Watermeadow Estate.
At Thursday's meeting, H&F Homes employees officially broke the news to tenants and leaseholders that they will be forced to move elsewhere.
Our reporter was refused entry on grounds the meeting was 'private'. When Shelia Noakes of Watermeadow Lane came out of the meeting, she said: "I'm so stressed. I was shouting in there, I was so angry."
She thinks the council is trying to move social housing residents away from the Harbour Club health and tennis complex next door.
"All they care about is money. They are trying to move the council people away from the posh people," she said. "Why should we be bunged out and put somewhere else?"
Dawn Shears, of Charloe Close, showed our reporter an H&F Homes leaflet she was given at the meeting which says she can return to the estate after it is rebuilt.
"But now they've told us we can't come back," said her neighbour Lisa Heath.
An H&F Homes spokesman confirmed that a mistake was made in the leaflet given to residents, who will not be able to return to the estate.
The council claims it has not yet decided what it will build on the estate and that it is demolishing the houses because their rooms are too small.
But Juliette Ewulum, 21, of Watermeadow Lane, is worried about the estate community being broken up. "I have lived in this estate all my life. Everyone I know lives here," she said.
An H&F Homes spokesman said: "When we asked people what they thought about living in Watermeadow Court, the vast majority said they were unhappy living in cramped conditions with very little storage space."
"That is why we're offering tenants the chance to move to a new home - because they want to. Leaseholders will get a deal that beats the market rate as well as compensation for moving home."
