GILLETT SQUARE The Heart Of Dalston About To Be Ripped Apart

Gillett Square London
United Kingdom

Apr 25, 2018 — A planning application has been submitted to L.B. Hackney that will:
- demolish the iconic Gillett Square market pods, home to some of Dalston's most valued traders
- build on the middle of Gillett Square, East London's leading public space for community, culture and live music
- socially cleanse hyperdiverse Gillett Square and sanitise central Dalston
- cover the south side building in plastic cladding

Please help to STOP the destruction of Gillett Square :

I object to planning application 2018/0792 because:
- it removes and demolishes most of the prize winning and much loved market pods in the square (Winner of Design Week Award 2001, shortlisted for Hackney Design Award 2004)
- it prevents the full completion of Gillett Square with an active Stamford Works frontage on the North side as agreed in the current Dalston Area Action Plan
- it covers the Bradbury Street workspace in polycarbonate plastic cladding, making it look like a giant shed

Time is ticking, you have till 7th May 2018 to register your objection. Your input is invaluable, so THANK YOU!
