Earls Court demolition plan approved by Mayor of London

Plans for a 77-acre redevelopment in Earls Court and West Kensington have been approved by the Mayor of London. The scheme involves demolishing two estates and the Earls Court Exhibition Centre.

Developers want to create four “villages” and a “high street” and say the plans will create 7,500 homes and thousands of permanent jobs. But campaigners from Save Earl’s Court West Kensington & Gibbs Green estates have opposed them.
