Isolated house in middle of new development land


P

Peter Saxton

I've read about people refusing to sell their house to deveopers but
this is the first time I have seen it in action. I live in South West
London and not far from me there is a lot of building being carried
out and there is one quite large plot of land that has had all the
houses and shops knocked down except one house that is fronting the
main rood with nothing left standing on the other three sides. There
are windows on three sides. It has a "for sale" sign.

I'm wondering how much they must have been offered to sell to the
developers. I'm also wondering what are the requirements for
compulsory purchase.

As I said the front of the house is on a main road but one side and
the back also have windows. The house is in the middle of the frontage
of this plot. It must mess up any attempt to develop the area. Across
the road there is being built a hotel, flats and gym as well as
restaurants and shops. It has a river and some older shops,
restaurants and a pub nearby.

This house must really be messing up the potential of the sight and it
looks like the developers are preparing to build.
