Ship Aground Heritage Vandalism: enforcement notice issued

On 18 April, Hackney served a Section 215 enforcement notice on the owners of the former Ship Aground building for the unauthorised and without prior approval partial demolition of this Building of Townscape Merit within Lea Bridge Conservation Area.

The steps required to remedy the adverse effect caused by the heritage vandalism are set out below. The notice gives the owners of the building three months to rectify the damage.

However, whilst this is a step in the right direction, if the new Planning Application (which is in 2 parts:  2012/0380 and  2012/0325) is successful, the enforcement order will fall by the wayside and the building will be effectively demolished.

We will be submitting our objections to the planning application (which is so flawed we believe it should be found to be invalid) over the next couple of days which we will post here in case you draw on this if helpful in any objections you submit.  If you support the saving of this building, you need to submit your objections by 26 April 2012.

Steps required:

1. Removal of timber boarding from the ground floor windows and door opening on front elevation and ground floor windows on both side elevations of the building and repair of ground floor window and door frames on front and side elevations of the building where fabric is rotten or broken with materials to match existing in terms of pattern, detail and design.

2. Reinstatement of glazing where necessary on front and side elevations of the building with all repairs to be undertaken to match existing in terms of material and design.

3. Removal of timber boarding from rear elevation of premises and repair or reinstate rear elevation of the property using suitable materials to match those on the existing property.

4. Removal of temporary canopy type structure from roof level and repair or replace original roof materials using suitable materials to match those on the existing property.

5. Refit the drainpipe to the roof of the building on the rear elevation of the property.

6. Removal of timber hoarding from boundary of outdoor area to front of the building.

7. removal of the advertisement canopy from the central first floor window on the front elevation of the building together with the removal of associated brackets from the first floor level on the front elevation of the building.

8. Clear the area of land to the front and rear of the building of building materials/ rubbish and other items.

All work should be undertaken in materials, techniques, pointing and style of those on the property. 

If you want these steps to be taken - you will need to object to the planning application.
