Plans for a new City of London court complex have been put on hold with objections from SAVE Britain’s heritage and other conservation groups.
The proposed court complex would be on Fleet Street holding the City of London police headquarters, an eight-story court building and a third commercial building.
For the court complex to be built buildings such as the Chronical House would need to be demolished. This is where the heritage and conservation groups object.
There are a lot of pros to this new complex being built; 400 newly created jobs will be available on top of the 2,100 jobs already in motion, the complex has been designed in a way that it will last at least 125 years, it will help drive growth in the square mile to retain the City of London’s position as the global Centre for business, law, and justice.
Of course, with pros there are also cons, the main one being the demolition of historical buildings in the Fleet Street area.
