These two lovely houses in the centre of the proposed Conservation Area in Acocks Green are up for auction on 18 March, with John Shepherd, of Solihull. You can link through here Viewings 1 – 3 pm most Wednesdays and Saturdays until the auction, we understand. We need someone to buy these houses and restore them to their former glory. They would make magnificent family homes, residential flats (already partly converted as such), other residential accommodation, guest houses or offices. There may be planning permission for a development involving HALF the gardens of these houses. This is under consideration. Planning have made it clear that they are NOT intending to give permission for further development.
Council Conservation think these houses are worth saving. Local councillors and six local residents groups in the immediate area strongly agree. Buy these houses and love them and you will win the love of the local people. Buy these houses in order to demolish and build a new development; you are in for a very costly, frustrating and time wasting exercise. Be warned!!

We have also accumulated a number of concerned recent comments on these buildings, which, for some reason, have been attached to an older posting – you will find that posting, and those comments here
