Save Portobello Road from the Portobello Village/Westway Space

Save Portobello Road from the Portobello Village/Westway Space

Stop the building of this foul aberration that being proposed. Let's keep London 'real'.

Why is this important?

It is important because such revolting developments are chipping away at our London and sucking it dry of its lifeblood and individuality. This is a marvelous piece of London where independent traders can sell their wares which allow W11 a truly authentic edge ; and now they are proposing a sanitized shopping experience akin to the Westfield that does not enhance or reflect our beloved Portobello . This just has to stop so please sign and pass on.

How it will be delivered
