The Daily Telegraph publishes our call to protect London’s heritage

The Daily Telegraph has published a letter from the Victorian Society’s Director, Chris Costelloe, calling for London to protect its architectural heritage.

The Daily Telegraph has published a letter from the Victorian Society’s Director, Chris Costelloe, calling for London to protect its architectural heritage. The letter was in response to The Telegraph’s report that Forbes had named London the most influential city in the world.

The letter stated:

SIR – You report that, according to Forbes, the business magazine, London is the most influential city in the world. The Victorian Society welcomes this finding, as well as Forbes’s comment that a global city must be “efficient and savvy” with a “strong historical pedigree”.

London’s success depends on its ability to preserve its heritage as an asset for the future. Failure to do so will undermine the city’s ability to differentiate itself from its global competitors.

Ensuring London’s future success and prosperity are good business reasons for readers to support campaigns to protect London’s architectural treasures, such as Smithfield Market, from demolition or insensitive redevelopment.
