UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester applied in March for the front exterior of Crewe Baths to be listed.
He said,"I was angry that Cheshire East Council had refused to apply for it to be listed.
Crewe Baths is a 1930's art deco building. Crewe has few historic buildings and even of those it has,far too many have been demolished over the years.
At the very least the historic exterior front of the building should be retained in any future development.The baths are now closed and are to be sold off now that the new baths in the town centre have become operative.
I would urge local residents to write to the Council and to Historic England to ask for the historic front exterior to be preserved and retained in any future development.
Historic England have stated (see below) that they will only reconsider their decision if substantial new evidence, that was not considered during the previous assessment, is brought forward. I would urge anybody with such evidence to supply it to Historic England."
Save our historic buildings.
Cllr Brian Silvester
