The statement below has been received this morning from Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council, following the the concerns raised over the importance of this historic building to the town’s character…

“Please be reassured that we have written to and spoken to the owner of the Harvest Home and informed him that prior approval is required before any demolition can take place. “

On the face of it this would sound to be welcome news although there needs to be some clarification on a number of issues that surround this. These have have been requested and will be reported once received. However, it would seem to be a step in the right direction.

The messages sent through the ‘petition’ made the point that the people in Whitchurch care about their town. For this everyone is thanked.
