On Friday June 19 at 9:15AM at the Ramada Hotel, Kenmount Road, St. John’s two appeals were heard, against the PCSP Town’s decision to approve demolition of the St. Philip’s 1894 Parish Church.
One appeal was submitted by a resident of PCSP, concerning conflict of interest “voting” by two members of PCSP Council.
The other appeal was submitted by the CBTS, concerning the Town not applying its own municipal plan regulations in dealing with heritage in granting the permit to demolish the PCSP designated Municipal Heritage Building.
The Eastern Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board hearing ended about 1:10PM. The three appeal Board members will give their findings within 21 days.
The demolition application itself was from the Diocesan Synod of Eastern NL: http://anglicanenl.net Please contact Bishop Peddle with your concerns to save and preserve the historic St. Philip’s church building: firstname.lastname@example.org
