Save St.Giles & St.Georges Historic School Newcastle-under-Lyme

This petition had 1,210 supporters

St.Giles and St.Georges School is an integral part of the Queen's Gardens conservation area, the borough council want to demolish it and put a modern four storey building in its place to create a 'hub' to contain council offices, face to face council services, library, registry office and police station. It is listed in the councils own list of important historic buildings and the demolition has been strongly objected to by the national bodies Historic England and The Victorian Society, as well as the local Civic Society. The school provides an attractive backdrop to the Gardens and the listed Queen Victoria statue and is of local historic and aesthetic interest. We propose that the school is restored, or at least the Queen's Gardens facade and tower incorporated into a new building.
