Clevelend Street Workhouse
The Cleveland Street Workhouse website is run by a group of individuals made up of concerned residents and eminent academics seeking to retain Fitzrovia's Georgian era Workhouse for the posterity of generations to come.
We believe that the building should be retained on the basis of the building's state of preservation, its classical architectural proportions, the anomaly of it remaining unlisted, its significant architectural and historical importance, and most importantly its local appropriateness. We also believe that the proposed new building is very much out of character with surrounding buildings, and therefore does not meet planning requirements for buildings within the Charlotte Street Conservation Area.
Please join us in lobbying Camden Council, Camden Labour & DCMS to reconsider their actions by clicking on the petition link,
