Stop the Demolition of the Derby Pepper Pot Towers

This petition had 4,398 supporters

The two towers are all that remain of the former Hall & Young's Derbyshire Royal Hospital a building that was built in the early 1890s and demolished in 2015. With the site now cleared a scheme has been proposed for a new 500-home neighbourhood that will retain one of the "Pepper-Pot" buildings and see the other demolished. Though on the Derby City Councils list of buildings of local importance they are not statutory listed. Currently the demolition decision has been deferred but public support is required to ensure that both of these iconic buildings are retained and incorporated into the proposed housing scheme.
