Demolition of our Georgian houses has started. Murphy refused to wait for the Court of Appeal.

No 66 Dalston Lane is the old "Sound and Music"shop, an 1807 house. It is in Phase 1 of Murphy's demolition programme. Murphy started stripping out No. 66 Dalston Lane last week. They removed all the windows and the chimney pots and all the roof tiles to let the rain in.


OPEN's solicitors wrote to request they cease demolition works until OPEN's case has been considered by the Court of Appeal. Murphy have refused, saying they've been delayed long enough already. OPEN has now applied to the Court for a hearing when it will ask for an injunction to stop the demolition until its appeal is heard.


You can see from this photo that the roofs of 66 Dalston Lane have been stripped of their coverings

If you see heavy equipment on site, or contractors damaging the houses, please immediately contact SaveDalstonLane on twitter or facebook  . OPEN solicitors may then need to make an application to the Court for an injunction to stop them.
