Bartholomew Row Townhouses

7-12 Bartholomew Row - Google Maps

From the Evening Mail:

“Lighting firm Christopher Wray wants to pull down the buildings at 7-12 Bartholomew Row and has submitted a planning application.

The owner claims that the row, near the new Matthew Boulton College and Millennium Point buildings at Eastside is beyond economic repair. But the council’s Conservation and Heritage Panel says that as the buildings, the earliest of which date back to 1779, have a preservation order the demolition cannot be allowed.”

    Sorry, but what is there to restore?
    They are just a row of tired terrace houses. there is nothing interesting about them.
    Pull them down and turn it into a open park area, the city centre could use it,

    I’m willing to bow to the experts on this one — very few instances of
    Birmingham City Centre housing remain.

    Town could do with a lot more parkland — and hopefully the big planned
    Eastside Park (just over the road from here) will be sorted soon.
