NEIGHBOURS FUME AT GRAFFITI SITE HOLD-UP

11:00 - 23 March 2006

 

Residents and businesses near a graffiti-ridden eyesore on a high-profile street have urged developers to get on with redeveloping the property.

 

The building, at the junction of Jacob's Wells Road and Clifton Triangle, used to be the Steiner Waldorf School but has been out of use since the school moved to Cotham in 1999. Now vandals have covered it in graffiti and people who live and work in the area are frustrated that, in the two years since a planning application was submitted to the city council, no work has been done on the site.

 

But Berkeley Square-based developers Ashfield Land, who are in charge of the site, say their plans to put up 32,000 sq ft of offices have run into unforeseen complications.

 

The application is still waiting to go to the city council's planning committee but the company's managing director hopes work will be able to begin by mid-summer.

 

The work is part of a complete overhaul of the area, which includes the redevelopment into flats of the old Grade I listed Pro-Cathedral at the back of the site.

 

Martin Palmer, who manages Spanish restaurant La Tasca at the top of Clifton Triangle, said he was keen for work to begin. He said: "It's pretty ugly at the moment - a real eyesore - and it's hardly giving a great ambience to the area, the restaurant or the offices upstairs.

 

"It's the first thing that people see when they drive around the corner on what is the main route from the city centre into Clifton.

 

"I doubt it's actually affecting our sales very much but it's not the greatest thing to have sitting next to your restaurant.

 

"Obviously it used to be quite a pretty building but now it just looks like it's full of rubbish.

 

"It's the only building in the whole of the vicinity which isn't being used for something beneficial to the area and I'd like to see it revamped and tidied up as soon as possible."

 

Eventually, the site will be known as St Catherine's Court and will contain a mixture of office space, available to a single occupier or for floor-by-floor lets, and car parking space.

 

Andrew Fisher, managing director for Ashfield Land, said: "Of course we are concerned about the state of the building but these things take a while to get sorted out and there have been a lot of complications.

 

"We have had some awful problems with security but it's very hard to stop people doing these kinds of things.

 

"We very much hope that we are now pushing towards a start on the site as early as we possibly can for an exciting new development in Clifton."
