Councillors 'fly in the face' of officers to approve demolition of the historic Chatteris Quaker Meeting House
An historic building in a Fenland town is set for demolition to make way for two homes despite strong opposition from various heritage organisations.
Now Chatteris Past, Present & Future have promised to challenge the decision made on Wednesday by Fenland's planning committee if councillors fail to give a good enough explanation as to why they went against officer's advice.
Mr D Brooks has applied to demolish the Quaker Meeting House at the rear of 76 High Street and build up to two three-bedroom houses. The building already has permission to be converted into a home.
