2 Planning applications for demolition of the old Poplar employment exchange at 307 Burdett Road have already been refused by Tower Hamlets Council, now the sites owners are taking our council to the High Court in an effort to overturn the decision.
“There is no doubt that the Poplar Employment Exchange has strong local value and is an important East London landmark. If this were a Conservation Area, the dignified neo-Georgian elevations and historic interest of Poplar Employment Exchange would make a positive contribution to its character.”
