We are very pleased to hear that plans to demolish Earls Court Exhibition Centre are being held up by the local residents. This is very encouraging news for many local hotels that depend on the business that the two exhibition spaces provide.
In order for the project to take place the developers will have to demolish the Hammersmith and Gibbs Estate and relocate its residents. In addition, the area will lose the art deco venues, which have been host to many of the worlds most renowned musicians such as The Rolling Stones.
Consequently, it is not surprising that the residents have taken such aggressive steps to stop this whopping £8bn contract. The decision has now gone to the High Court.
