Eyesore demolition plans revealed

THE END could finally be in sight for an eyesore factory which has stood vacant for years.

The owners of Bernard Uniforms have applied for permission to tear down the building in Main Road, Harwich.

Scott Properties has been trying to get the go ahead from Tendring Council after it became a hot spot for vandals.

The business’s staff are called to the site once a week to clear the site and make it safe and secure.

Because the building lies in a conservation area English Heritage must also be consulted. Usually anything which is torn down is required to be rebuilt in a similar style, or have investors lined up to develop it.

Scott Properties wants to build 34 homes on the land, but regeneration has been put on hold until the economy strengthens.

Phil Luxford, of Scott Properties, hopes if the building is torn down it will look more attractive to buyers.

One of the many eyesores created by Scott Properties who seem to be purchasing every piece of developement land, letting it become a hazard and then bleat about. They should be made accountable as are many private individuals when their homes become an environmental problem. Tdc should fix the site and bill these money grubbing parasites for the services rendered.

Rack off Sctt Properties. People employed at the factories for many years were laid off after it was realised that the land was ripe for developement. The buildings are being left to become run down to force the issue. Put them right or give them up.
