Why we need to stop the London Plan

2. There will be no protection for listed buildings, parks and gardens and their settings

Developers have plans for massive development with 22 storey tower near this ancient monument

Grade I listed All Saints Church in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames

I have received an opinion from Marc Willers QC of Garden Court Chambers that there are grounds to challenge the London Plan on the basis that its policies for London's heritage diverge materially from relevant national policy

Buildings, gardens and parks that have nominal protection by being listed Grade II, Grade II*, or Grade I and that are an integral part of the history of our neighbourhoods will no longer be protected from development, including from the effect of tall buildings


Listed buildings are not even mentioned specifically in the new London Plan

There will no longer be any requirement for:

•development that causes substantial harm to a listed building park, garden or building to be exceptional

•Any harm or loss to the irreplaceable features of our neighbourhoods to require clear and convincing justification

The most special places in our neighbourhoods will only be considered for their value in terms of “regenerative change

There are 18,173 buildings, bridges and gardens that are listed in London which embody the history of our neighbourhoods


They will all be at risk if we do not challenge the London Plan

Grade I listed


Grade II* listed


Grade II listed
