PETITION WILMER PLACE RETAIL DEVELOPMENT
We are concerned the effects of the developments will be:
- The possible closure of many food shops and other local businesses which are already struggling in the current recession.
- A heavy increase in traffic, congestion, air pollution and an increase in risk of accidents: especially because very large lorries will be turning outside William Patten Primary School into Wilmer Place.
- To ruin the current Victorian façade of Stoke Newington High Street through the demolition of two shops to create a wide entrance for cars.
- Potential damage to Abney Park Cemetery.
Stoke Newington is known for its special atmosphere of independent shops and community spirit. One large supermarket in this particular location would undoubtedly change this unique area.
