Save the former Carclaze Infant School building from demolition!
Cornwall Council wish to redevelop the former Carclaze Infant School as 'car parking and affordable housing'.
Built in the 1880's, this beautiful community building served the local area for over 130 years, until closure in 2010, due to the new Carclaze primary school opening.
We believe that this historic, community building should be saved. Cornwall Council have a history of neglecting historic buildings, and allowing them to deteriorate to the point that demolition is the cheapest option. The former infant school has only been vacant for six years, and still has obvious potential for renovation and community re-use once again.
The former Infant School building should be retained, with part as a community facility, and part converted to affordable accommodation to fund renovation costs.
Cornwall Council are planning how to begin site redevelopment at this very moment, and the future existence of the building is looking bleak.
The only way this has a chance of ending in a positive outcome is with COMMUNITY SUPPORT.
Please sign our petition to show your support, and to show Cornwall Council that they should not be allowed to bring in the bulldozers!
