This building on Broad Lane, S1 (shown in the pictures above) lies on one of the main arterial routes in and out of the city centre and has been neglected for a number of years prior to the council getting involved. It’s prominent position meant that not only was it detrimental to the amenity of the area, but to the city as well.

The outside of the property was found to be in a poor state with peeling and loose render, no guttering or fascia and significant structural anomalies, including a large crack down the frontage.

A Section 215 Notice was served against the owners in March 2007 and was complied with in full just 4 months later. The owners carried out the following work, as specified in the notice.

  • Repaired vertical crack to front elevation along with all other minor cracks to side elevations.

  • Removed all loose, defective and cracked render and replaced with new. Re-painted cream colour.

  • Replaced defective guttering and timber gutter brackets. Replaced all down pipes. Replaced all wooden fascia boards.

  • Replaced all loose or defective slates. Re-pointed verge and secured verge slates.

  • Re-painted all wooden window and door frames and doors.
