Steve Speakman is taking action to challenge the highly controversial decision to allow a 40 storey tower planned for the city’s historic heart. The plans, given permission by Manchester City Council, will see this massive development dominate the Grade I listed Town Hall and Albert Memorial. This very sensitive site is within 250m of 72 listed buildings and 9 Conservation Areas.
The money is for legal advice to explore whether or not the decision to grant planning permission by the Council was reached lawfully, and if so to bring a challenge, which could also make the developers re-think their plans.
Please help us raise £6,000. This will allow us to engage one of the best heritage solicitors in the country to look closely at the case and see if we have grounds for a legal challenge.
Manchester Civic Society, SAVE Britain’s Heritage, the Victorian Society, Twentieth Century Society and Historic England have all raised serious concerns about the impact of this scheme on Manchester’s fantastic historic city centre.
Please give as much as you can, to help us fight back against these damaging and irreversible plans.
