In the May issue of Grand Designs mag there is an interesting article on the derelict 1820s Georgian terraces, including the Duke of Clarence, at St Georges Circus and what their current status is.
Basically, according to the article 'In Peril', South Bank Uni bought them with a view to demolishing the whole lot to redevelop the site for the Uni. This plan was halted due to local intervention. The Georgian Group put an application in to English Heritage to have them listed, but that was turned down and they now sit on Southwark Council
s At Risk register. However it seems that the Uni has given ok to a 15 year plan for the site which includes stablilising and restoring the terraces but no long term use has been agreed yet.
The article questions whether the terraces should have listed or not and asks for your thoughts to be emailed to them ...
If you see a copy in the newsagent and fancy a peep - it's on page 151
