HONITON: Council to take action on state of The Old Mill
Friday, 24 January 2014
A listed building in Honiton will be tended to after district councillors decided to issue an Urgent Works Notice under Section 54 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 on The Old Mill, Mill Street.
The decision was made by East Devon District Council's (EDDC) Development Management Committee on Tuesday, January 7th.
A report informed members: “The condition of this vacant listed building has deteriorated over recent months and is now cause for concern to Building Control, Environmental Health and Conservation teams.
“Works are urgently required to make the building structurally safe and watertight.
“The condition of the property is deteriorating and has been identified as being in a dangerous state of repair.
“The mill is a Grade II listed building and as such its conservation is of importance.”
In addition, the report claimed that the building’s owner had not responded to correspondence.
If work has not been carried out within a fortnight of the notice being served, EDDC will seek to appoint a contractor and recover the related costs from the building’s owner.
