Globe has successfully sought the removal of a building at Front Street, East Stockwith from the statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. After careful assessment and consideration of the facts presented to them English Heritage sets out its conclusions in its Advisory Report to DCMS. It concludes that:
“After considering all the records and other relevant information and having carefully considered the architectural and historic interest of this case, the criteria for listing are not fulfilled. 41 Front Street is not of special architectural and historical interest, and should be removed from the statutory List.”
The case presented was that the exceptionally poor condition of the house arises from its poor original construction. Additionally, and significantly, evidence shows that the date of the house is later than that given in the List entry. It is also argued that the house is not of special architectural or historic interest.
Such decisions are very rare and are only arrived at after very careful consideration of all available evidence. We are pleased that, in this case, the ‘error’ has been corrected.
