Tomorrow is decision day for the hastily thrown together plans for the demolition of the former St Luke’s School on Talbot Street which currently serves as the area office for the County’s social workers and the erection of a new building of questionable design.
Derbyshire County County’s Regulatory – Planning Committee is meeting tomorrow to decided upon the County Council’s application to demolition and replace the former St Luke’s building – details can be found here.
As part of the committee’s deliberations, there will be a site visit to the Talbot Road site at approximately 10am.
I believe many residents and members of SOUL will be there to try and make representations to the committee’s chair as will Ellie and I.
These representation can unfortunately only be points on the merit of the planning application in isolation i.e. not mention of the future of Victoria Hall if the library is moved out nor whether this top down plan from Mr Lewer in County Hall is what the people of Glossopdale want.
So I hope to see you there if you are coming.
