Eyesore must go
10:22am Monday 30th September 2013 in Letters
A York Heritage Group doesn’t think that the former Reynards Garage should be sold for private development and should remain in civil hands (Press, September 26).
The reason given is that it has historic connections with the late Neville Shute’s Airspeed Limited when in the 1920s/30s aircraft were assembled in the building.
The site has been derelict for about ten years with no apparent “civil interest”, becoming more of an eyesore as time passes.
With future development opposite the garage, it will stand out as even more of an eyesore. Interested parties should encourage development on both sides of the road.
Historic connections with the garage could easily be recorded for future with a suitable plaque placed for all to see, at an appropriate time.
