Re: Re: Palmerston Park (Grianblah)
DCC have given permission (subject to a few conditions) to development of the house.
See decision here.
The documents section contains the drawings – as a total layman I can’t quite read their significance, but it seems to me that while a lot of work will be done the exterior shell of the house will be largely retained. Professional views?
I am very disappointed that it’s going ahead and also that the new owners thought this action necessary, but the outcome is certainly preferrable to the destruction of the house.
Incidentally, the conservation report is also on the documents section. The author thought the “property has no redeeming architectural features of note … and, in my opinion, is a poor example of the architectural design of its period.” Again, professional views? Seems, in my view, to be a questionably definitive statement.
