Hackney Planning Recommends Approval of 30-Storey, 106m Tower
Dear SCA Supporters,
We’re urging all to come to Hackney Town Hall on Wednesday, 2 December at 18:30 to stand in opposition to this grossly over-sized tower in the middle of Shoreditch.  Hackney Planning has recommended approval of the Highgate Tower - a 106m, 30+ storey glass alien - on the Chariots sauna/Majestic wine site on Shoreditch High Street (report HERE). 
The proposal for a comically big hotel and office tower, next door to two storey buildings and in the middle of low-rise offices and homes, will cast a shadow over much of the Shoreditch Triangle (image HERE) and dominate the area like Goliath striding across the land. 
More than 50 residents - and virtually every local interest group - objected to this scheme.  With a recommendation from Hackney Planning for approval, the Council hearing on Wednesday is the last chance to stop this monstrosity.  

Council rules severely restrict the time available to actually speak.  However an appearance in numbers makes a statement in its own right, and is really important.  Please, if you have the time, come on up and support the long-term vibrant future of Shoreditch. 

Date:  2 December 2015
Time:  18:30
Where:  Room 102, Hackney Town Hall, Mare Street, London E8 1EA (directions HERE)

And please pass this on/share in every way you can.  Follow us on Twitter at @shoreditchcomm, and get people to sign up for our email list.  Let us know how we're doing and contact us any time at
