Grove Lodge - Demoliton Delayed

The only attractive building on the college site - and they want to knock it down.

In January, the City Council gave planning permission for Grove Lodge to be demolished:

It is in the grounds of Murray Edwards College, on Huntingdon Road. The College wants to extend its car park, and had planned to demolish the building last week. It has given the building a stay of execution, after numerous local residents wrote to the College's president, Dr Jennifer Barnes, to complain.

The decision date is now set for September. If you want to add your voice too, the contact details are E-mail: president@newhall.cam.ac.uk ; Phone: 01223 762227 (President’s Office).
