“Following initial advice from Historic England, an independent structural engineer has been consulted and has concluded that a section of the Guest and Chrimes building requires immediate demolition for safety reasons.
“Due to concerns over public access to the site, demolition to part of the frontage of the building will begin on Thursday 19th July. Following this initial work, and in view of the building’s historical importance, a further assessment will be made on the last section of the frontage which contains both the main entrance and the most interesting architectural features.”
