Jackie Pearcey - protecting our heritage

15 Apr 2019

Gorton has a rich history and some fine architecture and Jackie Pearcey has worked hard alongside her Liberal Democrat Colleagues and local residents to protect and enhance that heritage over the years.

Jackie Pearcey campaigned to protect Gorton Monastery from inappropriate development.

When the former schoolhouse at Brookfield Church was threatened with demolition it was the Liberal Democrats who campaigned to get it turned into the pensioner flats that are there today.

When Labour were encouraging the development of Gorton Monastery into flats it was Jackie Pearcey and the Liberal Democrats who called for a more imaginative future for the building, and when the statues of the saints were on Liverpool dockside facing export to America it was Jackie Pearcey and the Liberal Democrats who fought to secure their return to Gorton.

When Labour's proposals for redeveloping the Gorton District Centre were announced it was the Liberal Democrats who insisted that they be consulted on in full before any proposals were brought forward, and when it was realised that the Plough was to be bulldozed as a part of the proposals it was the Liberal Democrats who led the campaign to save this historic pub.
