This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Stop the Proposed plans for a visitors Centre at Clifford's Tower in York.

This is a building belonging to the City. Therefore when it comes to making decisions like this there should be a great deal of consultation with the public. This is our history, our heritage, Public involvement and public consultation is essential other wise we will end up losing all our heritage.

More details

We really need to voice our concerns when our Historic City is going to be changed, I believe it should not be changed , visitors have always come to see the Tower so why spoil the beauty of such a iconic building.
