Big Community Show Support for Historic Ancoats Dispensary

4 Aug

‎1000 and Counting! We have reached our online petition target of 1000, with almost 800 signatures coming in the last 4 weeks.

On behalf of those involved in the campaign and would like to thank you all for your support and offers of help, money, time and utmost support.

I think both Urban Splash who still hope to demolish this building in 2 weeks time and Manchester City Council who are supporting this, will know if they precede they are going against the wishes of a community of many.

There will also be a paper petition going around Ancoats and nearby towns this weekend, so I’m positive we’ll gain even more support.

This is our city and we’re sick of greedy developers destroying it then leaving it in a worse state than they found it.

Please everyone continue to send letters and emails and direct telephone calls to your local Councillors and please ensure Urban Splash also hear your objections to this.

    Need to grab our heritage back from the greed of property speculators , who work hand in glove with the council…..this is an iconic building on Bradford road….decades of history for families of Manchester and particularly Ancoats Collyhurst , Ardwick , ….I remember how sad I felt when they ripped down the “Playhouse cinema” on Oldham …such a landmark of the area…..the council have recently allowed the destruction of what was once the iconic club the “TWISTED WHEEL” on Whitworth Street…the birthplace of Northern soul in England…..replaced by a faceless , character-less hotel!…horrible…..don’t let this happen to Ancoats……..

      Sadly Ancoats has been at the mercy of poor planning, property speculators and land grabbing for decades. Until those in power can be replaced, not much will change.
