As you are probably aware Holborn Studios have, over the last 12 months, been fighting Hackney Council’s shocking decision to grant planning permission to Galliard Homes Ltd for demolition and redevelopment at 49-50 Eagle Wharf Road. A judgment on their High Court Judicial Review case is expected soon.
Of course, the Greedy Horrible Lot (GHL) have put in yet another planning application nearly the same as the last one. This will involve:
- The demolition of 88% of the existing protected listed buildings.
- The immediate loss of over 300 jobs.
- The creation of unusable basement space suitable only for storage.
- The demise of Holborn Studios.
I would ask that you again support our campaign to oppose this development and the wanton destruction and hardship it will entail. You helped before. Please help us once more!
