The former infants' school in Club Row was designed and built by E.R.Robson, architect to the School Board for London (SBL) from 1872-1884. Most of his early SBL schools have been demolished and, apart from his 1879 infants' school in Club Row, all the surviving examples have been extensively altered. The detached single-storey Nichol Street Infants' School closed in 1933 and survives more or less as built.
The owner of the Grade-II-listed building in the Boundary Estate CA has applied to Tower Hamlets Council for major alterations, which include the unnecessary demolition of several walls and the replacement of the unique roof over the entire roof playground.
We, the undersigned, object to planning applications PA/12/2317 and 2318 for change of use (to include shops) and major alterations to the unique 1879 former infants' school in Club Row, which would cause substantial harm to the national significance of the listed building and the Boundary Estate conservation area (as set out in a letter of 7 oct and a letter of 6 Nov 2012 with four attachments).
