Demolition of Bennett cottage, Mayfield Road, S10 4PR

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 I AM LETTING YOU KNOW THAT ALTHOUGH THE APPLICATION  TO DEMOLISH  THIS BEAUTIFUL OLD

COTTAGE AND BARN  WAS 'REFUSED' BY THE PLANNING DEPT LAST YEAR, THE OWNER HAS PUT AN 

APPEAL IN.  SO NOW WE ARE, ON THE FIGHT AGAIN TO SAVE THIS  HISTORIC 'GEM' IN THE VALLEY.

Please, help! time runs out 29th March 2021.

 

I'd like to have asked the owner, ' IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN THE COTTAGE, WHY DID YOU BUY IT'.

                                                                                        If this gets passed, where will it stop?!

It’s the only way they could get to put up a new build in that area.  It would set a very dangerous precedent if passed. 
I never understand why people are attracted to a pretty, rural area but then want to uglify it.

With you on that point exactly! Absolutely ludicrous! Known this building all my life, knew the past residents, have

visited and seen the fabulous Crucks that 'were'!!! in the barn given much care, and 'were' a revered rarity in the area.

An 'eyesore modernistic block building' dose NOT belong on a grassland hillside, among the traditional stone walls

and dwellings in this much adored Valley.
