Beeston Civic Society started this petition to David Watts (Chair of Broxtowe Planning Committee) and

New plans have arisen which involve the demolition of Oban House (8 Chilwell Rd, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1EJ) as part of proposal to build a new medical centre.

They will be here: tinyurl.com/SaveObanHouse


Oban House is within St John's Grove Conservation Area, and on the boundary of Beeston West End Conservation Area.

It is a Victorian detached property, and part of Beeston heritage. Its removal will impact two Conservation Areas, detrimentally affect the character of the area, and will constitute the loss of a heritage building Beeston can ill-afford to lose.

While the Society understands the need for additional GP surgeries in the area, especially with the demise of previous surgeries, and the increase in housing developments and HMOs in the vicinity, we believe the existing building should be RETAINED, SYMPATHETICALLY EXTENDED and ENHANCED. 

The plans submitted represent mediocre design, overbearing in bulk and mass, and entirely incongruous to the neighbouring properties.

We reject ugly design; expect aspirational, progressive and beautiful additions to our town which protect, celebrate and enhance our heritage. 

If you feel the same way, please sign our petition - AND OBJECT TO THE PLANNING APPLICATION at:
