We are a group of residents of Newham, who are terrified by the prospect of the proposed MSG Sphere that will severely blight the area, cause noise and light pollution, unmanageable overcrowding and transport chaos in Stratford and Maryland. The site of the proposed scheme is as close as 250 feet to residential properties and is surrounded by densely residential buildings on all 3 sides. Please read below the list of reasons why we think this project is unacceptable.
The proposal aims to bring up to 60,000 people daily to Stratford for a minimum of 300 days a year. The mega-structure will be 120 wide and 96,5 meters tall, towering over Stratford's residential properties with bright advertising and events planned all through the day and night.
The impact on transport will cripple not only Stratford station but also nearby stations and will have effects in parking shortages, transport chaos and dangerous overcrowding.
Severe implications on air pollution, quality of life for local residents, environmental damage, unacceptable levels of increased CO2 emissions and increased crime and anti-social behaviour.
3 years of construction including overnight construction followed by the brightest and noisiest venue London has known only few feet away from hundreds of homes.
Some of the reasons why we reject the MSG proposal
(Deadline for raising concerns January 31 2020)
