aqnb may be all about progress and change but when that means destabilising a cultural center, we’re not so sure. That’s especially when it’s a place where such intriguing exhibits as Dean Blunt’s BRIXTON 28s are on show. An E-Petition has been lauched by London’s [ space ] calling for a halt to plans to relax planning restrictions so that developers can convert office buildings to residential areas.

It says the move will do little to promote affordable housing and threaten jobs, while damaging growth sectors in the economy,  such as the creative and tech industries. The petition goes on to quote elected mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe, saying the policy could destroy the borough’s creative cluster:

almost as soon as it has put down roots, and could have a huge impact on local jobs”. He said it risked “turning the borough into a dormitory village full of luxury apartments that do nothing to tackle the affordable housing crisis“.
