Past Planning: Sub-station at Grays Court, Off Chapter House Street


Grays Court - proposed site of sub station
An application for an electricity sub-station was lodged by the owners of Grays Court. The building was to be placed against the City Walls to the right of this photograph. The reason given was to upgrade the electricity supply into the whole area to the east of the Minster. The Trust objected to the placement of a structure so close to the City Walls and this was the opinion of the City Council planning committee, who refused the application.
