In our street the house at the end was sold recently for One million plus with an adjoining stable which had been used for storage in later years, now unsurprisingly there were planning applications to demolish the old stable in southwark news this week. And of course to build a three storey dwelling on the tiny site! Out of idle curiosity can a stable have listed building protection?
Is the house listed Jan? If so adjoining buildings which were part of the original build can be named as being connected to the listing I think (like a farmhouse with farm buildings) Where is this in SE1?
All the houses are grade 2 in bartholomew street Sarah ..the stable is actually joined on. How can they build actually joining on a house that was erected between 1813 to 1817... Unless they match bricks etc. reclaimed ?
if you go on to Southwark councils web page and go to planning applications you can type in the address and see the plans and all the documents online-if there is any historical significane to the building they will have to say why they think it should be knocked down-you can also object to the plans.
Forgot to say that in Southwark news the STABLE was described as a Garage! Don't know if my neighbours are aware yet as only saw it on Thursday in News, will not be back for another ten days, will make myself busy then. When home I will photo the GARAGE! And post it...well I can try!
Well I'm sure glad that people are protesting this - if there's one thing that we have way too much of in SE1 it's housing. And with this "stable" located next to some bins and a new-build industrial unit, it truly is a site of historical significance and a building that deserves the upmost protection.
there is a heritage statement with the plans-a very quick look at it suggests they are trying to say the garage was added on in the late 50's 60's and they think the fact it is not on old pictures/ plans proves this-worth a look as you may be able to find stuff or pictures that argue otherwise??
