19A Castle Street

19A Castle Street
The fate of this building, an early to mid 19thC livery stable, hangs in the balance. Planning application BH2013/02799 calls for its demolition as part of the redevelopment of the listed building 13A-14 Castle Street which it backs on to.

English Heritage did not consider 19A Castle Street itself suitable for listing due to refenestration and the 20thC rendered extension. However the planning committee refused BH2013/02799 on the grounds that 19A Castle Street has protection by virtue of being within the curtilage of a listed building, is of historical significance and there are no acceptable detailed proposals for its development, i.e. demolition and rebuilding are not acceptable.

The applicant appealed this decision on 10th July and the appeal decision is awaited.

  1. Well done Council. The trouble is although it is historically significant it is too small to attract the large preservation bods with clout. Any chance of a public petition to steel the backbone of the planning committee ahead of their meeting, The proposed design is designed to quieten any qualms of the Committee.
