Derelict house in conservation area

Reported anonymously at 19:38, Sun 6 April 2014

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 2 minutes later

6 Harley St does not appear to have been lived in or maintained for at least a year. The vegetation in the garden is growing out of control. As this property is in a conservation area the owner should be compelled to maintain its appearance.

  • Strictly speaking this is 6 Portland Terrace. The house has not been sold since at least 1995, according to the Land Registry. It was at one time on the market with Cobb Farr and Winkworths.

  • I have seen a light on in the house recently, so the occupant should be made to maintain its appearance. Tourists walk up and down this street on the way to Lansdown Crescent.

  • The weeds are now almost up to first floor level! A light can be seen in the house at night, but it may be permanently on.

  • The huge buddleia has been cut back, but this house is still not up to the standard of the rest of the street.

  • Urgh! The weeds completely cover the ground floor frontage of the house and block the way to the door now. Why is this tolerated?

  • Now sold and tidied up, albeit with the loss of much of the front garden to paving. Too little vegetation now rather than too much!
