A petition to stop the Campbell Town Hall from being sold by the Northern Midlands Council is gaining traction, with more than 200 signatures so far.
The council decided to sell the building during the closed section of its March meeting.
The petition, started by Nicole Graham - who intends to run for mayor in 2022 - to stop the sale has received 230 signatures.
She said once an asset was lost, it was lost forever.

The community is able to object to the sale, as it is a public facility, and mayor Mary Knowles said if objections were received the council would consider them.

The hall is used by the Campbell Town Museum and Visitor Information Centre and for monthly markets.
