Thousands of Hammersmith people face losing their homes after Hammersmith and Fulham Council admitted it wants to redevelop their estates.
Ashcroft Square and Queen Caroline Estate tenants representatives were summoned to a meeting last Thursday where officers confirmed the council has discussed with developers the idea of redeveloping their communities.
David Hughes, of Charlotte House on Queen Caroline Estate, said: "Being by the river and in a nice area means new flats will sell for more than £300,000.
"Hammersmith and Fulham want to get rid of council properties for rent and have homes built that can be sold."
The 62-year-old retired carpenter said his block is being refurbished under the Decent Homes programme.
He added: "Most of the estate has already been renovated and if all these homes are going to be knocked down, that is a vast waste of money. That is not the council's money, it is the Government's.
A council spokesman denied there were any plans or proposals to redevelop the estates.
She added: "H&F Council, together with H&F Homes, is starting to look at ways we can improve and renew our estates over the next 15-20 years once Decent Homes investment comes to an end.
"First of all we want to get a better idea of how residents view life on their estate - this will help us in forming any future proposals."
