Save Trent Lane Depot: Campaign update

posted 27 Sep 2012, 05:09 by Tom Hughes
The Save Trent Lane Depot campaign, which Sneinton Alchemy supports, has suffered a setback. It is now more important than ever to sign the petition, which currently stands at 315 signatures.

"English Heritage have reviewed the application for listing and have decided to reject it. Though they recognised the importance of the building and it being locally unique it has been decided that it is not unusual or innovative in a national context." For more information see the campaign blog.

Sneinton Alchemy also takes the view that the buildings are locally unique and an important part of Nottingham's Industrial heritage. They represent Sneinton's only historic industrial presence on the River Trent and relate to a time when Sneinton was Nottingham's trade gateway to the world. We resolved at our last meeting to write an open letter in support of the Save Trent Lane Depot, calling for any redevelopment of the site to include adaptive reuse proposals for the warehouse. The letter is attached.
