I think it would be a fantastic idea for a council to show this sort of leadership - and there are other communities - not just blocks of flats where this would work. There are all sorts of reasons which mitigate against people striking up the community based friendships which existed 30 - 40 years ago. It strikes me that this would be an excellent way to get things going - find out what you have in common, test it out through the web and then if all is good - get together and make it a face-to-face friendship.

I very much agree. Some of the community cohesion work that TCC has done for local authorities has been in 1930's terraces. This is also an area where a pilot scheme to create a geographical social network to bring disparate communities more together might might be worth exploring.
