More details from petition creator
The original Redhill Station which was built in 1841 by the London & Brighton Railway is located at Hockley Business Park The Locomotive shed is scheduled for demolition in mid 2018 (apart from one wall). It is one of the few remaining railway buildings of that age and type. The the original planning permission was refused by Reigate & Banstead Council, but the demolition was approved on appeal and against the wishes of the town. This historically important building has a number of important architectural features and is one of the earliest buildings in Redhill and deserves to be preserved. We are therefore appealing for its retention.
This petition has been rejected because:
- It was outside the remit or powers of the council
