    1. Petition by

      Eastenders against horrible redevelopments

We regret to announce that Boris Johnson Did Not Say No and has allowed the scheme to go ahead. 

We don't accept the decision and will continue to argue for a better development and one which keeps more of the buildings. The Greater London Authority, under Boris Johnson, owns the land. His decision favours the few not the many and makes a mockery of 'Localism'. 

Our petition shows the strength of feeling from people who care about the hospital and the East End - we will not be ignored: please carry on signing !

Why do we have to put up with bland, sterile developments and lose the areas with character? Why tear down the old Victorian hospital when some of it could be renovated?
 

Boris Johnson says: "We must pay attention to quality as well as quantity" in his London Plan. He also said: "All developments must remain appropriate to their context and their setting and have enduring beauty that will remain into the next century for generations to come." 

We agree!  Say yes to new housing - no to bog-standard buildings.

 

 

 

 

To:
Stop your proposed monolithic nine storey development on the site of the old Queen Elizabeth Childrens Hospital on the corner of Hackney Road and Goldsmith's Row. It's overbearing, ugly and Not Good Enough for London

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This hospital diagnosed my CP, taught me to walk, talk, gave me a life and never gave up on me. Please do not destroy this wonderful building.

      This hospital was built from people raising money for it as a hospital not for expensive flats. This building should remain and converted into flats if no longer required as a hospital.

      As usual, the East End's heritage is being seen as unimportant, such that it can be swept away. This hospital was the culmination of an initiative taken in 1867 by two Quaker sisters in the face of a huge outbreak of cholera in 1866.

      I live on this street and the creation of an ugly getto will ruin the area.
