Call to ‘save’ closed £6m mound
Infamous attraction was shut after a catalogue of failures and embarrassments
Friday, 14th January
A PETITION to save Marble Arch Mound was launched in the week the attraction was shut.
Builders are now due to start tearing down the infamous attraction, which cost £6million, on January 18.
Westminster City Council built the mound with the aim of bringing shoppers back to the West End but after a catalogue of failures and embarrassments the deputy leader, Cllr Melvyn Caplan, was forced to resign.
However the petition says: “This icon of modern London and celebration of life during the Covid deconfinement period should be preserved and the many happy memories people have enjoyed on it should continue to take place.
“The mound is both a piece of art and a piece of community – it must not be cut down in its prime especially in light of the money and joy already invested in it.”
