The Archdiocese has even offered to give the building away without charge to any agency able to take it on.
The request to take the building into state control was a last option. Our hope was that the uniqueness of the structure would be recognised and its future secured by state intervention.
We note the Government’s recognition that “curated decay” of St Peter’s is perhaps the only remaining option for one of Scotland’s greatest buildings.
We are disappointed that the opportunity to save one of Scotland’s great post war buildings has been missed.
