Our Response

41 Grosvenor Place forms part of a monumental Grade I late 18th century terrace of townhouses at 1-41 Grosvenor Place, situated within the Bath City-Wide Conservation Area and World Heritage Site. It originally formed the initial phase of works around the proposed Vauxhall Gardens, now Kensington Meadows, by John Everleigh, and remains evidentially significant of a speculative Georgian leisure enterprise. The focus of works is to the front lightwell and the rear boundary walls of the building, which have been indicated to be in a poor condition and susceptible to ongoing frost damage and inappropriate pointing works.

We are supportive of the principle of necessary repair works to arrest ongoing damage to a listed building, as well as boundary walls considered to fall within its curtilage. The replacement of inappropriate cement mortar with a lime alternative is supported in principle. Given the degree of damage and resulting works required, we encourage inclusion of an encompassing methodology that details the proposed scope of repairs, in particular where it appears that the extent of delamination would require the piecing-in of new stonework.
