It is a heart braking situation and I would be happy to sign any petition to save our heritage, After all theses places are the castles of the future! Can you image a developer being allowed to pull down Alnwick castle to build 500 homes I think not.
I feel in the country we live in today its all for nothing, particularly where money is concerned. The country we live in today has no interest in heritage or history which I find really sad.
English Heritage for example; The building at RAF Alconbury that has been given the 'highest categories of listing in the English Heritage register of buildings of architectural and historic importance' and its only 19 years old, you can't work them out?????
I feel that no matter what people do, money will always come first. No one is interested, least of all developers, in what purpose the buildings once served, or re-using buildings? that costs far to much, it's simply cheaper to pull everything down and build these little cheap box towns that are popping up all over the place.
I highly respect you Phillip for continuing your fight for Driffield and I really hope you get what you are fighting for, but I have a feeling its going to be in vain.
Finally we where corresponding a few years ago about me making a 3d model of Driffield and how it might look if redeveloped, did you ever get one done?
