Demolition starts on Flora House
The handsome 1862-built Flora House, in Greensted Road, is being demolished (see post "Greenstead Road: not to be ignored" below). To make way for what? No details appear to be available under Greenstead Road on the council's planning website. I expect the worst: dreary, cramped, low-quality construction with a few random pastichy period bits added on to provide the planners with an excuse for approving it. I hope I'm wrong.
