STOP ENGLISH HERITAGE MAKING CLIFFORD'S TOWER LOOK LIKE DISNEYLAND!

This campaign has ended.

STOP ENGLISH HERITAGE MAKING CLIFFORD'S TOWER LOOK LIKE DISNEYLAND!

Stop the Clifford's tower redevelopment plans.

Why is this important?

A HUGE overhaul of Clifford’s Tower - including a controversial new visitor centre -has been approved by councillors, despite further stinging criticism.
City of York Council’s planning committee met on Thursday night and voted 11-3 in favour of English Heritage’s plans of building a visitor centre into the base of the motte and new walkways and stairwells inside the tower.
The design it is not just ugly beyond belief, it destroys the view of Clifford tower and the hill, just to allow English Heritage to put a shop.
MAKE COUNCILLORS TO LISTEN TO THEIR LOCALS! PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP THIS

Because Councillors should listen to the people, and respect their opinions.

How it will be delivered

To the York City Council, to English Heritage and in a press conference.

Clifford's Tower, York

Reasons for signing

  • This will be an absolute eyesore, and restrict access as has been done at Whitby Abbey
  • Opposition to an anti-Yorkshire philistine move by an a-historic bureaucracy obsessed by tourism.
  • it's an eyesore
