    Bravo Robert Mull!

    This is the maddest thing, a burgeoning and successful art and architecture institution in the east end could potentially be lost and a great teacher too...how did this happen ?

    land values alone should not dictate our cities values - a more creative approach has or could have been missed ...if money is required then why not create a mixed use site. ...

    At first glance this is an elegant an beautiful scheme, more of these bridges in the east end will indeed really help our congested road network and ease the flow of people whether by foot cycle or car...as movement particularly by car becomes increasingly challenging in central London.

    We must urge our mayor to continue the good work of the GLA transport department to tackle these issues in a comprehensive and holistic way.

    Moving The Cass from the East End will be hugely damaging to our community - there are artists and architects who live and work in The Cass and contribute tot he local community and economy here which is one of the ‘most diverse in Britain.

    I speak from personal experience both as an employer of students from The Cass and my daughter who is studying fine art at The Cass.

    The Cass is a local institution which has grown in respect and importance over many years. The Cass is as important as any and selling the land for development will not and cannot replace that.

    We must value and cherish our children's futures providing education within a community is the best thing we can do. I deplore this quick turn for profit Aldgate will suffer it is already looking like a very poorly planned jungle of a place.
