The ward’s Heritage at Risk pieces of history

This article follows on from the article about the Temple in the grounds of Mount Clare, Minstead Gardens. From this it was thought it might be worthwhile explaining a bit more about those buildings which are listed by Historic England as Heritage at Risk.

When did the buildings become Heritage at Risk?

Email (dated 10 January 2018) from Historic England listed the following years as to when they were registered as Heritage at Risk;

 Notice how three of these buildings feature in the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward?

Next year the Temple, if still on the list, will be celebrating 20 years on the list?

As the Temple has been covered, it might be worth sharing photos with you of the other buildings.

Temple in grounds of Mount Clare, Minstead Gardens

Off the back of the article ‘Wandsworth (Conservation Area) Advisory Committee (9 January 2018)’ there were a couple of requests to add a photo of the Temple to the blog. A generous photographer from the Alton West part of the estate provided a picture, which is provided below. This picture was taken roughly in November 2014, note that even then this Grade II* monument was boarded up. In the photo you can see in the background the DARA Focus Hall.

 

Perhaps what is a little surprising is how long it has taken to start placing this monument on the radar for some needed attention. At the Putney Society organised event ‘Roehampton University and how it relates to the local community’ on 24 September 2015 the Temple was asked about and there was a mention of the Temple being Heritage at risk and that there had been some vandalism to it.

Putney Labour Party materials on the Alton Estate

When discussing what the various parties offer the Alton Estate, one aspect that pops up is that not everyone is informed about what they are doing other than the infrequent letter distributions on the estate and not everyone appears to receive them. So this might be of interest.

If any are missing, please do let us know.

Roehampton Partnership – 1st December 2015

Roehampton Partnership meeting this Tuesday 1st December

Time: 7pm

Where: Whitelands College (Ruskin Room), University of Roehampton, Holybourne Avenue, Roehampton SW15 4JD.

Have a read of the back page of the draft Minutes, our representatives are “encouraged to attend” this meeting. One would have though, given the supposed importance of this meeting that every effort would be made to “attend”.

Where it mentions “Observers” in the draft Minutes, this means that these are members of the public, so you head down and see what this is all about.

To be added to the mailing list for future Agendas and draft Minutes, reach out to the contact mentioned in the Agenda.

ARW speaks up for the residents at a Council meeting

On the 20th October, the draft Minutes of the Community Services Overview and Scrutiny Committee Tuesday, 22nd September, 2015 7.30 p.m. were published. Hooray!

Refer to section 6 of the Council’s meeting to read the latest Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Alton Estate as well as the notes regarding Alton Regeneration Watch speaking up for residents by providing representations.

It’s important to note that the potential listing of Allbrook House and the Library Building were mentioned at the meeting though seem to have escaped being mentioned within the draft Minutes?

Also, note that a Putney Heath and Roehampton ward Labour Councillor provided a representation in favour of the regeneration.

Ibstock School – community use follow up

This is a follow up blog article “Ibstock school theatre can the community use it?” which was about the potential for community use of the school’s new theatre.

We’re not planning application experts though having a new application number (2015/5074) seems a bit strange rather than following on from the original application (2013/0803).

Background to the application is “The Performing Arts Centre (PAC) was due for completion at the end of August 2015. However, it is likely that the final fitting-out of the PAC will continue through to October. The School hopes to have its first production in the PAC in December 2015. The purpose of this submission is to quantify the increase in traffic likely to be caused by the opening of the PAC and its use by the local community and other organisations, and to describe the mitigation measures being put in place”.

Bear in mind that point 13 of the “Permission for Development” dated 11 June 2013 stated “Prior to commencement of the use of the Performance Arts Centre (PAC), details of proposals for the provision of access to the PAC’s facilities for the benefit of the local community, including local schools and clubs, shall have been submitted in writing to the Council for approval”.

Anyway, if of interest the following links may be of interest.

Case File – this has information regarding the PAC Transport statement, the 2016 calendar PAC use, PAC Community Access Proposal.
