This petition ticks all the boxes for preserving the home of Nicholas Lane, the well known composer. It is such an exceptional, and historic Studio premises, part of the rich character of London.
Other countries might tear down their heritage and history. This is GREAT Britain and England’s green and pleasant land.

We MUST protect the actual fabric of our heritage for our children, our children’s children and for future posterity. Please preserve this architectural and social, artistic, and truly international spirit of place. Bring it back into the land of the living. Make it a public landmark, a monument to the greatness of not only Kensington, Chelsea, Fulham and London but of the nation and the entire world. Tourism is an important engine of local economy and the history and events associated with this truly respected place and house can only be of benefit to everyone, not just the money-people.
This is NOT a Brave New World; it occupys a place in time, space and the beating heart of humanity. With just a little amount of imagination and community spirit and service, you/we may bring culture and art, music and humanity back to this address, and in so doing, ensure the popularity of this location to all humankind. There can never be too much culture, art, creativity, imagination or humanity. Music is the mother of all the arts. Let us honour her, not tear her down and destroy her.
