Residents call for inquiry into Earls Court demolition

A group of Earls Court residents are calling for an inquiry into the planned demolition of the Earls Court Centre and surrounding flats.

Part of the area earmarked for demolition by the council

TheEarl’s Court Area Action Group are pursuing legal action against the decision by Hammersmith and Fulham council to knock down the buildings for redevelopment.

Part of their protest included an "I Love Earls Court" day yesterday where people were invited to tour the areas earmarked for demolition. Developers argue the 77 acre redevelopment will create 7,500 jobs and a boost to the local economy.
