SAVE is calling on Bristol City Council to abandon plans to demolish a fine Italianate Victorian villa with important links to the city.
In a surprising turn-around, the Labour Cabinet in Bristol resigned last week, bringing the Lib Dems back into control of the City. They have confirmed that the expansion plans at the Sefton Park site - which would have allowed for the demolition of Ashley House - will not continue. Instead options for a new school on a new site are to be explored.
We are delighted to hear that Ashley House has been secured for the time being. However it is only the time-being. Every effort must still be made to ensure the safety of the building which is more than likely to be threatened again.
