To the passionate printers at the Centre for Printing History and Culture
I am writing to ask for your support for the John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich. It is currently facing closure due to plans to redevelop the site for residential use. This would mean the closure of the museum and most likely the collection would be scrapped or at best reduced to a display or two in a cafe! This is a working museum, a real gem for Norwich as it was part of the UNESCO City of Literature bid.
Please take a look at the support on Facebook savethejohnjarroldprintingmuseum.
The Planning planning application Ref. 18/01286/F has now closed for all objections. Please help by spreading the word and if you would like to send your thoughts to the planning dept their email is firstname.lastname@example.org. The objection we have is under policy cc17B that ‘...they will provide space to accommodate the Jarrold's print museum and associated heritage interpretation.’ There is also the argument that the plans will only provide 4% of affordable housing rather than the 30% required.
Many, many thanks for your help.
