The last two newsletters were about the London Legacy Development Corporation's public consultation on the proposed extensions to the existing Fish Island CA and the Hackney Wick CA. On 24 January 2014, the LLDC announced a further consultation and published the two Conservation Area Appraisals and Draft Management Guidelines for comment.
Many organisations and individuals wrote in support of the extended conservation areas but there were also many objections. Please read the long attached letter
I have written on behalf of EEWG; and please do your best to write again.
This time, EEWG objects strongly to the extended conservation area in LB Tower Hamlets being named Fish Island & Hackney Wick South. Also, given the obvious necessity for conservation area documents to be accurate, I have felt compelled to correct the many errors.
The deadline is 21 February 2014. My apologies for not writing sooner but I have been revising a long extract from EEWG's forthcoming East End Waterway Guide (referred to throughout the attached letter). The extract needs a few more revisions as I have also been busy researching two buildings in Stour Road (between H Forman & Son and Stour Space). Both have been omitted from the proposed local listing; and one referred to briefly in the attached letter
, under page 25 Stour Road Cluster.
In your letter please add your support for these two buildings to be added to the local list. Both were used from about 1953 to 1984 by a manufacturer of printing machines and printing presses. The engineering workshop retains its original steel gantry beams (for an overhead travelling crane) and is now a rare and important surviving example of its type in London.
Please do your best to meet the deadline or write as soon as possible after 21st February.
