Shabby listed building is spruced up after Tower Hamlets council intervenes
A LISTED building in Bow which fell into disrepair has been spruced up after Tower Hamlets council sought legal action against its owners.
Neighbours had complained about the state of the building on Campbell Road which had rubbish piling up outside it.
Council officers visited the building in 2009 and wrote to the landlord outlining what steps should be taken to avaoid legal action.
But the building’s owner did not take appropriate action and a Section 215 Notice requiring the building to be cleaned up was served on in January 2010.
Eleanor Jones, Chair of the Conservation and Design Advisory Panel to Tower Hamlets said: “Enforcement by Tower Hamlets council of breaches or neglect of listed properties is a key part of the preservation of our heritage and Conservationists welcome the decisive action taken by the Enforcement Team.
