We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Reopen the competition for selling Reading prison to new bids

The Ministry of Justice should reopen the process for selling Reading prison site to new or improved bids (such as those made possible by public interest and donations for community-led bids), which can be considered against existing bids.

More details

The Government should acknowledge the public interest in retention of a cultural landmark, which could provide a transformative and sustainable arts space for the town, and which we believe would respect environmental, social and governance criteria, by reopening bids for the sale of Reading jail.
