PARADISE - NOT LOST AFTER ALL?
Paradise Cottage (76 Richmond Rd) will be auctioned on 21 May 2013 by Maggs & Allen. Planning application 12/03215/F for conversion to two houses was approved for this house, but it could be refurbished into a family home.
Read about the history of Paradise Cottage.
If you consider this a 'valued building' why not suggest it for the Local List?
