We have prepared this guide to help anyone who wishes to write an objection to the plans to partially demolish Liverpool Street Station.

How do I object to the plans to partially demolish Liverpool Street Station?

• You must object in writing; either online or by letter. You must say in your opening line of your objection that "I Object...."
Where do I find the planning application for Liverpool Street station?
What are the key issues to cover in my objection?
• The substantial harm to the Grade II listed station through the demolition of the roof structure of the existing station concourse, and replacement with a new structure. Which would also compromise the setting of the surviving C19 train shed. This is contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework which requires clear and convincing justification for any harm to a listed building and refusal of consent if a development will lead to substantial harm
• The substantial harm to the Grade II* listed hotel through a 16-storey vertical extension, cantilevered over the existing historic building, internal alterations to historic fabric to create new entrances to the station concourse, and the change of use from hotel to office use, resulting in the loss of last continually functioning C19 hotel in the City. Contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework which requires clear and convincing justification for any harm to a listed building and refusal of consent if a development will lead to substantial harm.
• The substantial harm to the Bishopsgate Conservation Area by the imposition of a tall building in an area characterised by low and medium scale buildings. Contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework which requires Local planning authorities to look for opportunities to enhance or better reveal significance of a Conservation area.
• Harm to the Grade I listed St Paul’s Cathedral by the massing and height of the proposed tower which would disrupt views protected under the London Views Management Framework.
• Make sure to reference the National Planning Policy Framework in your objection, otherwise your objection may be dismissed:
Paragraph NPPF 200 states: "Any harm to, or loss of, the significance of a designated heritage asset (from its alteration or destruction, or from development within its setting) should require clear and convincing justification."
Who do I address my objection to?
• Chair of the Planning & Transport Committee: Shravan Jashvantrai Joshi
