A great description of the building and the politics surrounding the sale and destruction of this piece of history can be found here:

Article in the Examiner can be found here

It infuriates me that the council claim ‘because it isn’t listed we can not stop the demolition of the buildng’ – well you could, firstly by not selling your historic building stock to volume house builders, and secondly by invoking an article 4 ruling. You really can keep ths building alive should you choose to.

You just want the money though. This generation will be looked upon as reckless iconoclasts one day
