Restore Old Vicarage Building; kind courtesy of the community minded developer.

When South Marston Hotel ran into prolonged financial difficulties and wasn't viable as a business, the site was sold to a developer. Obviously the land is worth more than the crumbling building site on it and is ripe for houses; I am not here to argue for or against the building of those.
According to the Borough Planning committee as of May this year, the plan was agreed to retain the surviving Victorian Old Vicarage building as the new development was built in the village.
Now whether by arson or accident there have been frequent fires in a relatively short space of time. As always of course, it's the emergency services who risk their lives and the taxpayer who foots the bill.
While I hear that the building does not have the protection of being 'listed', if you believe the developer who owns the site should take care to preserve the character of the village while building the new site, please sign this petition and let's let them know.
