Athlone agreement

Letter to the Editor

• As a member of the planning committee in 2004 which agreed to the Athlone House development (including new flats on the old NHS site), I totally agree
with John Roche that greedy developers should not be able to sell on the house to others for demolition.
It might not be the most beautiful building, but it does have a certain grandeur, and no doubt any modern development will rear much higher over the Heath, affecting the view. Developers are constantly trying to overturn conditions made when an original planning permission was given, making a joke of the committee deliberations if they are allowed to get away with it. The new owners should be made to stick by the agreement to restore Athlone House.
