Lots of my ancestors lived and worked around this area years ago. Iv visited many times. Love the area. Please leave this building alone and other old buildings as well. Enough were destroyed during WW2. So leave whats left alone. Its our heritage


Demolition of this beautiful, historical building would be a tragedy. We should be conserving our heritage for future generations, maintaing and restoring these buildings to all their glory. Such places make Great Britain glorious, their strong presence providing an identity, and so they should remain. Please don’t replace with faceless, modern, ugly eyesores.


Yet another wonderful building about to sacrificed. Absolutely criminal. Britain’s heritage is slowly being eliminated. Please stop destroying our identity.


I was born here in 1934 and remember it well!


As a director of the renowned Spiro Ark (an educational organisation with a charitable status,)whose aim is to spread knwledge and understanding of Jewish history and culture to Jews and non Jews alike I urge you to reverse your decision to demolish the two historic buildings on 22 &24 Underwood Road.


In a multicultural city like London, the story of each ethnic group must be preserved in order to demonstrate the contribution of each group to this rich historical taoestry. Old buildings and their human stories are one essential key to mutual appreciation and respect of “the other” who so often feel estranged Preservation of two buildings can add much to mutual repect and better relationships- a price well worth considering!!!


We have already lost too much London history. It should not be forgotten.


Too much London history is being obliterated or sanitised


If not for what might be considered obvious reasons, please reconsider your planned action following the, ‘Prior Notice of Demolition’. It is exactly this perceived misuse of due process that leaves local people and others feeling impotent and disenfranchised. Tower Hamlets Council were not elected to allow this action, equally Peabody Housing should be ashamed of abusing real democracy for the so-called greater good.


Stop taking our history away from us.


This building represents a part of East End history now almost disappeared. So much has gone already, reminders of a particular time and a particular community, not only is this building a reminder but a tangible link with those who came before. So little remains, in fact, that surely we should cherish what is left.


Let’s not lose any more old buildings from Spitalfields streets.
I would expected Peabody to be a bit more sensitive than a normal commercial developer, but it looks like we’re going to have to fight this one.
