Save Earl's Court Exhibition Centres from Demolition & Overdevelopment!
To: Rt. Hon. Eric Pickles MP, Department for Communities and Local Government
Call-in the planning applications for the demolition and development of the Earl's Court Exhibition Centres and West Kensington & Gibbs Green Estates for a transparent public inquiry.
Why is this important?
The iconic Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre faces demolition. The development will also require the demolition of the West Kensington and Gibbs Green Estates, homes to 760 Hammersmith and Fulham residents, and not provide the urgently needed homes for average Londoners. This will have an impact on the UK Exhibitions Industry, the local and national economy and overload the capacity of the tube and road system in North-West London. Please sign the petition NOW! We, the undersigned, request that Mr Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government call-in these planning applications for the following reasons: 1. Given the extensive land ownership by TfL on site and the failure of EU Air Quality levels at the junction of Warwick/Cromwell Roads Junction, there is a conflict of interest for the Mayor to determine these planning applications. 2. The development spans two separate local authorities with different interests and therefore affects residents in both LBHF and RBKC. 3. There has been widespread opposition to the development by local residents in both affected Boroughs, LBHF and RBKC, which have not been taken into consideration. 4. The development will have an impact on the UK Exhibitions Industry, the local and national economy and overload the capacity of the tube and road system over a wider area than the development area.
