Thousands of objections lead to Sellar making changes to their plans for Liverpool Street Station

The Victorian Society has strongly opposed aspects of the scheme, in particular the substantial demolition of parts of the station and the construction of a tall building supported through and cantilevered over a listed building.

These are non-negotiables as far as the Society is concerned, and we urge Network Rail and Sellar to revisit these issues as part of what must be a root-and-branch review over the coming months. Fundamental changes are required, not minor modifications. Reappraisal of the scheme offers the opportunity to make the entire process more transparent than it has been to date, and we would welcome the opportunity to feed into discussions between the City and the developer.
