City's heritage has been sadly neglected
GOOD on The Herald for free speech in printing Cynthia Bucket's letter Your Say, March 4, where she rightly highlights our neglected architectural historic buildings in Union Street and the lack of culture in our city.
What about a Maritime William Yard Museum. I as a once a proud Plymothian, totally agree as an art historian, where any form of cultural preservation on behalf of our local authority, is most certainly lacking, where two beautiful theatre buildings, with their artistic facades, have been allowed to fall into disrepair like the Octagon and Devonport library to name a few.
Neglected by our preservation officers with many millions of pounds coming in from trust funds and community arts from EU funding.
What's happened to Baroness Cumberledge, whom I believe was going to help us preserve our heritage of cultural buildings. Where many of these listed buildings of architectural merit have been deliberately laid to waste, many to the advantage of these private developers for affordable asylum seeker accommodation of students, where our planning representatives are receiving the millions in EU dispersal grants, one would have thought there was no need for a 2% council tax charge when we are paying in £40 million each day to the EU for our cultural amenities of being dumped upon by jobs worths horticulturists.
