Stop the demolition of St Martin’s House, Queen Street, Gillingham

Dorset County Council plans to demolish St Martins House in Queen Street, Gillingham SP8 4DZ, without any consultation with Gillingham residents, using a "permitted development" loophole in planning regulations.  They have already used this loophole to obtain consent to do so.  The building is listed as a Heritage Asset in the recently adopted Neighbourhood Plan document, which local residents voted 91% in favour of in the official referendum.  Our county council has totally ignored this. We, the undersigned, want Dorset County Council to promise not to demolish St Martins House.

Update #13 years ago
Bad news: The occupants of St Martins have been given notice to quit by 8 Jan - even though Dorset County Council have convened a Petition Panel meeting to review this petition on 20 Dec. Meanwhile, the planning application for the replacement development is https://planning.north-dorset.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=PGDWE4LHIEP00&activeTab=summary. If you live in Dorset, please take a look and comment. If this application is turned down, we may yet save St Martins.
