Redbridge Council is considering the future of Wanstead Youth Centre, which it claims is in need of over £2.4m of refurbishments.
A campaign to save the Elmcroft Avenue site and register it as an asset of community value has been launched.
“This is a vital facility and there is simply nowhere to relocate all the groups that meet there. We reject the council’s claim that the venue is no longer fit for purpose; the flooring and lighting have only recently been improved,” said a campaign spokesperson.
A consultation on the future use of Wanstead Youth Centre runs until 13 March.
