TAKE A MOMENT TO HELP SAVE HACKNEY WICK AND ITS CREATIVE PERSONALITY BY SUPPORTING ITS BID TO BECOME A CONSERVATION AREA!!

Hackney Wick and Fish Island is home to the largest concentration of artists anywhere in Europe.

The planning department (LLDC) is trying to save this area by marking it as a conservation area.

''A conservation area is a place with a special historic interest, buildings and streets which the council protects (or designates). It is important that we keep the character and look of these areas.''

Help this area from becoming another soulless residential area like Canary Wharf.

The LLDC are under severe pressure from property developers and their lobbyists and simply need emails to get the measure passed.

HELP THE COUNCIL PROTECT THIS IN THE FACE OF PRESSURE FROM THE PROPERTY DEVELOPERS.

WE HAVE UNTIL JANUARY 8TH 2014 TO DO THIS!

The proposed increase to the currently protected conservation area can be viewed here:

Dear Anthony Hollingsworth,

I am writing in support of the proposed extension of The Hackney Wick and Fish Island Conservation Area.

This area is of great historic interest.

Yours faithfully,

A SIMPLE EMAIL IS ALL IT TAKES TO PUSH THE MEASURE THROUGH!

    I support this petition because my family lived and worked this area for decades up until the early 1960s. Maybe a selfish request, but this area has so much character and to destroy it all just to build European style rabbit hutches, that will last a third of the time these old building have is simply not on. Don't forget all the history in this part of London. We all get out our prams slating ISIS destroying historical buildings and artefacts abroad as I type, but are we any better? You decide.

    We need these workspaces and I don,t want to see them destroyed in the way that the rest of London is being carved up between unaccountable "property developers" and unaccountable politicians.
