Northleach Prison – Sale postponed.

Good News!
The petition asking Cotswold District Council (CDC) to postpone the sale of the Old Prison for 12 months and re think was submitted on January 12. Thanks to efforts of so many local champions the e-petition and paper petition combined have reached over 1200 signatures.

Over 400 from Northleach itself, but many too from nearby small villages, and right across the district and nearby areas. During Christmas we carefully checked to make sure that within the signatures we have well exceeded the 850 within the CDC boundary to qualify a call for a debate by CDC full council.

I am waiting to hear what the CDC process will be. This is a great achievement by the Northleach community as a first step.

One thought on “Northleach Prison – Sale postponed.

  1. As Chairman of Friends of the Cotswolds we will be launching an appeal to save the Old Prison. However it is very important that everyone writes to the two leading councillors of Cotswold District Council supporting the community heritage approach outlined at yesterday's meeting. The individuals are Councillor Lynden Stowe at Arbour House, Broadway Road, Mickleton, Chipping Campden GL56 6PT
