AdminHistoryIn March 2000 Spitalfields Market Under Threat (SMUT) was formed. It was a coalition of individuals and groups which included: the Spitalfields Community Association, the Spitalfields Historic Buildings Trust, the Spitalfields Small Business Association, the Spitalfields Society; Christ Church Spitalfields, St Botolph's Church Aldgate, the East London Mosque.

It protested against the redevelopment of Spitalfields Market and was successful in its Judicial Review in December 2000 in having the July 2000 planning permission quashed in High Court because LBTH had failed to make clear the extent of the increase in office space from the 1997 outline permission. While ultimately the campaign(s) were not able to stop the redevelopment of Spitalfields Market, they did successfully delay the process and in the process made gains for the local community.
