Castle Area Campaign Cliffords Tower YorkThe Castle Area Campaign Group successfully fought against the City of York Council to stop the building of the ugly Coppergate II shopping mall next to the scheduled ancient monument of Clifford's Tower and the Castle Museum in York, England.

The citizens of York, cheered on by heritage fans around the world, and with the support of York Civic Trust defeated this appalling planning proposal in a public inquiry in 2003 after the Council had given permission for it to go ahead.

See what the greedy developers were planning and what the pathetic City of York Council officers and politicians were prepared to accept. Click here for more details of the Coppergate II shopping mall.
