The Georgian Group has joined the reformed Liverpool Street Station Campaign (LISSCA) alongside our sister bodies, Save Britain’s Heritage, The Twentieth Century Society, Historic Buildings & Places, The Spitalfields Trust, Civic Voice, London Historians and The Victorian Society. LISSCA aims to stop the insensitive and harmful development plans for Grade II listed Liverpool Street Station and Grade II* listed former Great Eastern Hotel, now the Andaz London Liverpool Street Hotel.
The Georgian Group believes that the height and mass of the current proposals at Liverpool Street Station would compromise the prominent part that the drum and dome of St Paul’s Cathedral has played in the London skyline for the past three centuries. The proposed development also threatens other aspects of the City of London’s rich heritage. It would dwarf the tower of St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate and obscure key views within the Bishopsgate Conservation Area.
We are pleased to be joining fellow conservation organisations to take a stand against it and safeguard our historic buildings from insensitive development. Click here to sign the petition.
