SAVE DALSTON LANE: appeal lodged as demolitions commence

January 4, 2015


On the same day as the Spitalfields Trust ’s disappointing meeting with Hackney just before Christmas, Murphy proceeded to demolish the 1807 Sound and Music building at no. 66, one of the finest of the remaining houses in the terrace: chimney pots were lopped, the roof stripped and windows removed.

But not before OPEN DALSTON lodged an application to appeal the courts’ decision of 24th November 2014, to allow the demolition of terrace.   Murphy’s lawyers have confirmed to OPEN’s solicitor, Dowse and Co. that they have no intention to delay the works whilst the appeal application is considered, and so OPEN have proceeded to apply for an injunction to halt any further destruction.  More detail can is on Open Dalston’s blog.

But the escalating costs of the continued legal processes still needs to be covered. OPEN Supporters are asked to continue to donate here if  able to do so, or make a Save Dalston Lane purchase here!  The Prince George on Parkholme Road are also selling t-shirts and bags – ask behind the bar.

The petition to Jules Pipe, Mayor of Hackney, asking that he ‘allow The Spitalfields Trust to restore Dalston Lane Terrace’ has now been signed by 750 people in just over two weeks.  Each signature and the really moving comments in support of the restoration of the important terrace have been sent to Jules Pipe, Mayor of Hackney. OPEN asks ‘Can we welcome him back to his desk tomorrow with 1000 emails?  Please sign if you have not already done so!’
