We believe that a venue and arts centre dedicated to the memory of John Peel, celebrating musical in the North, will be a better use of the Odeon building in Bradford than the current plan to allow developers Langtree to demolish it and replace it with apartments, offices and a hotel.
This project will benefit the city culturally and financially, whilst preserving our heritage. It will benefit the region as a whole, and will provide a Northern hub for independent music.
We appeal to the Homes and Communities Agency to use the powers they have which allow them to back out of the demolition agreement. We then appeal to them to offer us the chance to take this project forward instead.
