The fight to save Uptin House continues. On November 1st, the Council granted permission to allow another student block on the site which would result in the building being demolished. There were many aspects of the decision-making process which we believe were extremely poor, and we think that we might have a strong case to take the Council to a judicial review. If this was successful, it would mean the application would have to be heard again.
So we are now crowdfunding to get advice from a top planning barrister who can tell us whether there is a strong case.
The originality, quirkiness, and creative essence of the Ouseburn Valley will be eroded further by decisions of this sort.
If you care about the Ouseburn Valley, and the buildings that house its creative industries and allow small businesses to thrive there, could you put in a small amount to help us to do this?
