The Georgian Group, alongside other heritage bodies, has submitted a response to the proposed designation of a new Conservation Area in the City of London, with the hope of adding protections to the Grade I listed Bevis Marks Synagogue and the church of St Botolph’s without Aldgate.
Our letter highlights the continued development threat to the area, as in 2021 we objected to two planning applications within the setting of Bevis Marks Synagogue.
The Group supports ‘Option 3’ put forward by Alec Forshaw and Esther Robinson Wild and encourages further additions to the east and south of the area. Members can add their views to the consultation by Monday 6th November by clicking on the link here.
We welcome the initial steps in designating a conservation area including Bevis Marks Synagogue and acknowledging the rich history of this part of the City of London. To read our full letter, click here: Bevis Marks & Creechurch Conservation Area Consultation Response
