The first phase of the sorry saga of the Harry Hancock bulding on Summer Bank road, which has been the focus point for many antisocial events in recent years.
From arson, fly tipping, vandalism, escape routes, climbing frame for kids, eye sore and more, the Harry Hancock has been the bane of residents to both residents of the Summer Bank road and Bankeyfields Estate for a number of years.
Camapigners in the area have called for the building to be pulled down without any luck.
A recent visit by John Van Der Laarschot, to look at the site was later reported back to residents that the estimated cost to pull the building down would be about £30k, which sadly the council couldn't afford.
So I'm pleased to say that the council have had a chance of heart and the pulling down of Harry Hancocks will begin within the next 6 months.
What state it is left in, and what will be done with the land afterwards is anyones guess, but it's worth considering the possiblilities before demolishion occurs.
