We the undersigned want to protect our industrial heritage, including the Grade II listed Weavers Cottages on Thomas Street, which have been marked as a heritage asset by Historic England.
Last year, developers tried to demolish these listed buildings in the heart of the Northern Quarter. Instead of restoring these 18th century cottages and bringing them back into use, developers wished to demolish them completely. Labour Councillors, the community and the Planning Committee knocked back the developers and refused to allow the plans to go ahead.
The developers have resubmitted the same plans, not taking into account the concerns of those who want to see these historically important buildings restored.
We sign this petition calling on the Planning Committee to once again reject these proposals and call for the developers to restore the buildings, not demolish them.
