Demolition of a school building in Shipley:
Demolition does not require full planning permission, but rather a demolition notice, so this has been progressed with alacrity.
A nice looking building that looks to be in good condition, but as the officers report suggests, way off English Heritage’s radar.
The centralized position on the site would make any redevelopment difficult should someone want to capitalise on the full footprint, and as such there was no chance conservation would have been contemplated.
The rest of the school will presumably stay open.
At this point, as the people tell me I am an overly zealous heritage obsessive, I remind them that this type of building can NEVER be built again.
