Griff Rhys Jones, the President of the Victorian Society and the LISSCA Campaign, to Save Liverpool Street Station will be hosting a free public meeting.
Hear how we can stop the partial demolition of Liverpool Street station and prevent a huge tower being cantilevered through and over the Grade II* listed former Great Eastern hotel.
Come to the public meeting and hear from experts how:
Liverpool Street Station would be partially demolished with a huge tower cantilevered through and over the Grade II* listed hotel
Commuters would face 10 years of disruption
The train sheds and concourse would be in constant gloom under the tower
Improvements the scheme claims to pay for are already happening
The plans would set a terrible precedent meaning no listed building is safe from having a tower built on top
The so called ‘eco tower’ would require huge amounts of carbon emissions for its construction
What is the justification for offices in this area?
You can help us stop all this!
Seats for the event are First Come, First Served on the night.
