Workington & District Civic Trust was formed in 2001 to channel the public outcry over the loss of the original 1912 educational building to make way for a hostpital. When Lakes College West Cumbria was built at Lillyhall, activities at Park Lane were transferred there. The whole area was purchased by the North Cumbria Primary Care Trust as a suitable site for the new community hospital to replace the out-of-date infirmary. Members of the public lobbied hard but failed to have the fine old building incorporated into the plans. However, two members of Workington & District Civic Trust were invited to sit on the PFI sub-committee and helped to choose a design which reflected elements of the former building.
