Council Bid To Remove Listed Status From Historic Building

An application has been made to stop St Edmunds Hospital in Northampton being listed as an important historical building, that's worth preserving.

Planning permission for the site has now run out, and Northampton Borough Council says it's keen to contact the site's owners to talk about the building's future.

Councillor Tim Hadland outlines the council's concerns and reporter Tom Percival meets Jim and Anne Wishart, who live opposite the site. Stuart talks to Cyrus Manafred who runs a nearby business and to local historian Alan Clark.
