Letter to the editor | Old Manor House

Dear Editor,

 

Your article on February 14 – Council boosts efforts against empty houses with tough action – made me wonder about the future of the Old Manor House in Felpham.

 

It has been empty and in a sad state of disrepair for decades – not only an eyesore but a waste of much-needed accommodation.

 

It surely has the potential to be a very elegant building and garden; an asset to Felpham’s mix of architectural styles as well as a comfortable home, thereby decreasing (even if in a small way) the need for yet more new housing development on our surrounding fields and floodplain.

 

Can we now hope for some ‘tough action’ after all these years?

 

P. Slater,
Roundle Square,
Felpham
