As previously reported West Berkshire Council is selling the Control Tower building at the former RAF Greenham Common. The local ward (Greenham Parish Council) wish to save the site as a visitors centre to this historic and beautiful place. As a result the local Lib Dem’s have started a campaign which this blog fully supports and urges you to also.
In their own words:-
Julian Swift-Hook and Billy Drummond are leading a campaign with Greenham Parish Council to try to save the Control Tower for the community.
West Berkshire Council (who were given the Control Tower by Greenham Common Trust in 1997 along with the rest of the Common) now want to sell it off. Estate Agents are advertising it for sale on behalf of WBC.
Our plans for the building include a Visitor Centre (with café and toilets) that will reflect the military and social history of the Common as well as the beautiful natural environment it is today. We would love to hear your ideas too – please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
The campaign can be found here
