The fight to save the iconic Earls Court music and exhibition venue from demolition under proposed development plans for the surrounding area has stepped up.
Residents of Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham have launched a campaign to oppose the plans which also include the demolition of the West Kensington and Gibbs Green Estates, homes to 760 Hammersmith and Fulham residents. The related online petition has now gone live.
