- GREAT NEWS - GREAT NEWS - GREAT NEWS - GREAT NEWS - GREAT NEWS -

Just to let you all know that the campaign by local people and their supporters to save the Old Fruit & Wool Exchange in Spitalfields has been successful.

Full details can be read in this article:http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/l...d-7545205.html

Thanks to all who supported the campaign and for your supportive words on this message board.

For those of you who did not support the campaign, tough luck! I'm sure you'll find a commercial development initiated by corporate business interests and narrow-minded local councils going against the wishes of local people elsewhere. You can try your luck there!

For now, at least this part of the East End's heritage is safe.

Thank you all again.

ADRIAN.

The firm’s development director Maxwell Shand called the decision “disappointing” and vowed to fight on with a fresh proposal.
He said: “If we need to change the design or the mix of the development then we will do that.”
It might be too soon to celebrate.

Grave Maurice,

Yes you might be correct as I heard today from campaigners that the Tower Hamlet's planning office wants to resubmit plans (possibly in a slightly revised version) as soon as possible.

I will keep you all informed.

ADRIAN.

No answer

For instance, the bazaar on Fashion Street built in 1905 (seen in blue on the above map) is a Grade II Listed Building. Which means certain things when it comes to changing it. Or demolishing it.

I suppose its just one of those mysteries why the LFWE isn't listed. Maybe its not old enough? Dunno

OBJECTIONS TO LONDON MAYOR'S DECISION ON TOWER HAMLETS' COUNCIL'S DECISION TO SAVE FRUIT & WOOL EXCHANGE, BRUSHFIELD STREET

DEADLINE FOR COMMENTS AND CONCERNS THURSDAY 21st JUNE

Despite the recent decision by Tower Hamlets' councillors not to demolish the London Fruit & Wool Exchange in Brushfield Street, there is now an appeal directly lodged to the London Mayor's office to rule on the application originally put forward by Exemplar Properties. If Mayor Boris Johnson's office rules in favour of this appeal then this means the demolition of the London Fruit & Wool Exchange in Brushfield Street to make way for a brutalist office block can go ahead. This would mean the loss of the Exchange itself, the small businesses that surround it, the Gun public house amongst other aspects vital to the community and the historical heritage of that part of the East End.
We therefore ask that people, wherever they live, lodge a complaint to the London Mayor's office objecting to a ruling that would go against Tower Hamlets' council to maintain the buildings and ultimately the demolishion of the Exchange. These objections should be lodged to the GLA officer dealing with this issue, GRAHAM CLEMENTS at: graham.clements@london.gov.uk Please head all emails and communications 'Re: London Fruit & Wool Exchange, Brushfield Street, 99-101 Commercial Street, 54 Brushfield Street & Whites Row Car Park, London'.
Then say that you back the decision to not demolish this location taken by Tower Hamlets council at a council meeting in May and that you do not back the development of the site by Exemplar Properties. Also make it clear you wish the site to be preserved for the local community and throw in any comments concerning historical interest and heritage that you might feel may help. These have to be sent urgently as the Mayor's office will be deciding on the issue on THURSDAY 21st JUNE!
ALSO:
You may wish to spread the word via Twitter or the internet and you can write to group such as ENGLISH HERITAGE and the TWENTIETH SOCIETY to draw their attention to the situation. The more the merrier!

I sincerely hope there is a great number in opposition to this and that it is stopped.

I have seen so much of this overruling of public decision by greedy corporations. I see this action as another example of power and greed, so disheartening.

IF YOU HAVEN'T EMAILED THE LONDON MAYOR'S OFFICE ON THE FRUIT & WOOL EXCHANGES FUTURE AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO PUT, SIMPLY 'COPY & PASTE' THE TEXT BELOW AND EMAIL IT TO: graham.clements@london.gov.uk

Re: London Fruit & Wool Exchange, Brushfield Street, Spitalfields.

Dear Mr Clements,
...
I would like to comment on the imminent decision by the London Mayor's office to look into the future of the famous London Fruit & Wool Exchange in Spitalfields.

Recently, at a council meeting in Tower Hamlets, the overwhelming majority of councillors agreed that the site in question should not be demolished and should be preserved for future generations. This decision was made after the property developers, Exemplar Properties, put forward a plan to demolish this famous and historic structure and build a brutalist block of office buildings which were completely unresponsive to the commercial and recreational needs of the local community.

Therefore, I ask that the London Mayor is responsive to the local concerns of the community in Spitalfields and those from outside the area who visit the site regularly, and reject any objections put forward to his office to overturn the decision made by Tower Hamlets councillors to save the London Fruit & Wool Exchange for future generations.

I thank you for your time.
