Undershaw - My latest thoughts

I'm getting a little tired of pro-developer people who pop up to moan on news websites about the defeat the owners of Undershaw have suffered in the High Court.
Me, with my book, at Undershaw in November 2011

I just read one where a commentator asked whether anti-redevelopment supporters intended to sit on their "we won" laurels while the house continued to deteriorate and went on to doubt whether any alternative plan was in place.

For the record, it doesn't matter a jot whether or not there is an alternative plan right now. Having a different plan in place is not a prerequisite for fighting one that is inappropriate.

What has been bought now is some time. It is how that time is used that is important. Interested parties (including the present owners in theory) can put forward plans for the house as one structure and these can then be submitted to the local council for consideration. The positive thing at the moment is that while this is going on the only force attacking the building's fabric and history is nature and nature, in its defence, is not out to make a profit.
