Save the Norwich nuclear bunker!

 
PRESS RELEASE: Green Party joins call to preserve nuclear bunker

Green Party lead Euro-Candidate Councillor Rupert Read today announced his support to local residents' bid for the preservation of a Cold War era bunker on Chartwell Road near the Constitution Hill roundabout in Norwich.

Councillor Read said, "The use of this site for a road side restaurant is clearly inappropriate. The site should be preserved and turned over to community use."

"This bunker is a relic from a time when the Cold War was very real and could have easily led to Nuclear War. It is part of our history and a memorial to a war that thankfully never happened."

Campaigners are attempting to raise the money necessary to buy the site and are due to apply to English Heritage.

Councillor Read added, "I urge the owner of the site to reconsider and allow campaigners the time they need to raise the money to buy the site."
