HCS regrets to see the possible demolition of the Old Barracks in Harold Street, previously the Records Office, now the subject of a planning application Ref : P162283/CD4
Whilst there is considerable history associated with the building and the recruitment of volunteer troops the actual building, whilst being in a discreet 19th Century style, it is questionable that it would be granted a listing. However there is a draft of a possible Listing application listed here. There has been substantial alteration especially to the east elevations. Recording the details of the building needs to be a part of the planning consent.
Members of the HCS interested in involvement in this historical recording should contact our Membership Secretary.
Our comments on the application can be found on the excellent Herefordshire Council Planning Web site - Ref : P162283/CD4
