Petition launched to save the iconic Church Studios, in Crouch End
Campaigners have launched a petition to save historic music studios from being redeveloped.
Church Studios in Crouch Hill, Crouch End, are owned by Platinum selling artist David Gray, 44, who announced last month plans to turn the building into flats and offices.
There was outcry from people living in the area, upset at the proposed changes to the studios where artists such as The Eurythmics, Radiohead, and Bob Dylan have recorded.
A petition has now been launched calling on Haringey Council to reject the plans.
On the council e-petition webpage, campaigners call for the council to “consider the impact such a redevelopment would have on the character and cultural heritage of Crouch End.”
Campaigners also want the council to consider solutions which will “enable the entirety of the building to continue to be used by musicians and artists for creative purposes.”
The studios were originally owned by Eurythmics star Dave Stewart who converted the church in 1984 and used the studios to finish the duo’s first album Sweet Dreams.
