As an artist who currently has a studio on this site I can certainly vouch for the unique quality of these workshops/studios. The way they are structured around an internal courtyard - visible from the street - creates a great sense of working community.

If demolition the internal space will all be filled in by the new scheme. Apart from the loss to us of some of the most loved studio spaces I've come across, the filling in of the visual cut through between Glasshill and Kings Bench St will be a great loss for the character of the st - making it like a tunnel from one end to the other.

Do please help out if you can - as outlined by R.Heaton. above...this is the last chance!

I worked for James Clark and Eaton from 1948 till 1957 after National Service in the RAF. I worked at the glass decorating dept 49 Kingsland Road Shoreditch. My Father Dick East drove a glazing lorry for many years at Blackfriers SE1. By 1957 Clark and Eaton also had branches all around the South of England, but was taken over eventually by Solar Glass.
I have a Centinary book with the names of all employees and pictures Inside of Glasshill Street.

The hearing on Tuesday lasted all day: developer, council and local objectors all spoke. Inspector clearly interested, but impossible to say which way he'll go. Decision expected in 6-8 weeks.

The planning inspector has allowed the appeal, which means that the demolition and development will now go ahead.

Developers always, but always, win.

I quote from the news story -

"It would also bring increased activity to the area thereby improving natural surveillance to the overall benefit of the public realm"

Is it so hard to speak in plain English, or is this some ruse to make us think they are intelligent? This kind of corporate nonsense demonstrates how out of touch these people are. Utterly depressing all round....
