Campaigns

Our current major Campaign is to protect Victoria Tower Gardens where the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre is scheduled to be built by the Government, removing vital land from free access as a public park. To see our full record of championing this Grade 2 park we have created a dedicated page about our campaign for Victoria Tower Gardens.

Victoria Tower Gardens

What is happening now and what you can do?

Donate: The Trust has launched a case at the High Court for Judicial Review and has started a fundraising page with Crowdjustice. Please give what you can to help us save this space. The applicant for this project is the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). MHCLG has also reserved the rights to make the final decision on this project following a Planning Inquiry scheduled for October.

Print a poster and put it in your window: The Trust is working with Save Victoria Tower Gardens and The Thorney Island Society, our fellow objectors who have produced this poster .

Planning

As well as our major campaign we are regularly notified about planning applications that will potentially encroach on London’s historic landscapes either on a weekly basis from the Gardens Trust, or directly via Local Authorities or interested groups. Our planning volunteers meet regularly and discuss how best to respond to planning notices. To find out more see our planning page.
