The historic building is an eyesore and has been in terrible condition for a decade at least. Also young people have been breaking in to the building which is dangerous. Earlier this year the owner got permission to build 27 houses, 5 of which are to be in the restored old structure, on this fine site. However nothing has happened. I have asked the Council to apply the 3% Derelict Site Tax. Officials have agreed to check the site and apply the Tax if possible in order to encourage progress or at least tidying up the site.
