Drum roll….the verdict on the listing is……
Okay, the anticipated wait is over….the result is in, and Allbrook House and the Library Building are not to be listed as they “are not of sufficient quality for protected status”.
Interestingly, there is an article by the Council on putneysw15 which provides its comments regarding the none listing (though I challenge any reader to locate much in the way of any comments prior to the result other than the poor ‘object of beauty’ or ‘act of sabotage’ question and answer that was recently discussed at the Council).

However a Roehampton resident challenges back on the need for demolition.
