Demolition request made for listed Park Circus terrace
September 6 2010
The applicant intends to replace the property with a new build structure to match the original, accommodating 14 one and two bed flats within the site footprint.
Ashlar states that the present condition of the sandstone facade precludes refurbishment, pointing out that if left unchecked the building could deteriorate to the point of structural collapse.
The new build will make use of matching sandstone and slate to marry with the rest of the terrace.
Park Circus is presently beset with some unsympathetic mews additions and the burnt out hulk of an earlier fire victim. Controversial plans are also in train for a new build terrace to the north of the estate, finally completing the original masterplan first drawn up by Charles Wilson in 1855.
