I have written to the K.N.on this subject years ago. Then I proposed pulling everything down and making a green space. Now I have changed my mind. . Yes ,pull everything down but in their places build social housing type flats for all sections of the community. I was taught by Pack in the 6th form that KLY. developed on the Centripetal system. Looking at all the To Let signs in the centre of Town makes me think that the planning system of allowing more of the Green Belt to be used should implode.Why can`t all To Lets by law be Govt.grant aided to change to residential use .Yes this will involve demolition but like "a phoenix from the flames" whole industrial districts of Kly will become transformed. Let`s face it Kly faces decades of Industrial flat-lining and will never reach the Industrial zenith it once enjoyed.The K.B.G.S.site might kick -start this process. Something Miles Gale might have been proud of if he happened to be alive today!Notwithstanding the fact the old Grammar School should never have been swept away in my opinion.
Re: Future of K.B.G.S.building and associated Tech.
This idea is,I think, very sound.I believe there is some new legislation which allows business use to change to residential use - maybe someone more au fait with the present situation could comment.It is a fairly recent change though whether it is a suggestion or a done deal I don't know.
