Save Cork Street Campaign

I was happy to meet with Simon Tarrant this week on behalf of the Save Cork Street committee this week to receive a petition signed by more than 10,000 residents.

Simon's wrote on his blog afterwards:
Here I am pictured with Westminster City Councillor Jonathan Glanz at Westminster City Hall, where I handed over our Save Cork Street petition of 10,753 supporters.
I have also sent a document outlining evidence illustrating how Cork Street, the undisputed internationally famous contemporary art street, is under threat by property developers. The Save Cork Street e-petition has gained 10,753 signatures over the past month, demonstrating huge public support for this campaign.
Under the terms of the Government’s Core Strategy Policy CS26 (Buildings and Uses of International and National Importance), the Save Cork Street committee believes the West End Commission should urgently consider the far-reaching and devastating impact the proposed property developments by The Pollen Estate and Native Land, would have on Cork Street’s international art dealers and the West End.
I should also like to especially thank Elliot Lee, who, together with Siti Osman-Haywood our Gallery Manager, took the time and trouble to initially formulate the wording for the Save Cork Street Petition.
 Please see the petition below. Our target is 20,000 signatures
All the best,
