Save Redhill's old Post Office building

885746674379334.jpg?r=0.6571721371728927
A developer has recently applied to replace the roof of the old Post Office (the ground floor of which is now occupied by Prezzo) with a glass and steel structure containing flats. This building is a classic 1930s building of its type, and one of central Redhill's few remaining old buildings. The Council refused planning permission, but the applicant has appealed to a government planning inspector. 

Sign this petition before 17th July and we will send it to the inspector along with our views on the benefit of keeping the building intact. You can also make your own direct representations to him/her by following the link on the right, above.

To see how this building used to be one of a row of older buildings on London Road, take a look at the other link above.

Please note that there is no criticism of Prezzo implied in this petition - it has established itself as a valuable part of Redhill, bringing this building back into use.  A few floors of flats above it will only reduce the attractiveness of the building.

Discussion

  • Geoff Soper With plate glass on the front & modern flats in the roof. It gets depressingly close to the point when all pretense of protecting Redhill's historic architecture is abandoned and we just let developers to put-down our heritage humanly.

  • Sarah Schot It's a beautiful building & we need to keep at least some old buildings in the town centre as it gives the place character which god only knows Redhill needs!
