Proposals to flatten two Grade II listed buildings opposite Angel station as part of Crossrail 2 have sparked a petition.
Plans currently being discussed by TFL and Network rail could see the loss of the 19th century Coop Bank building on the corner of Upper Street and Pentonville Road as well as the disruption a number of other buildings opposite Angel Station.
These would make way for the entrance to a new station entrance that would give access to the new train line.
The petition has already been backed by St Peter’s ward councillor and architect Cllr Martin Klute, who criticised the plans last month and called for residents to voice their views before it was too late.
“Irreversible decisions are being made now about the type of railway this will be, where it will go, and which buildings will have to be demolished to make way for it,” he said.
