The Bird House
Text of enquiry sent to Croydon council today:
"Given Croydon Council's predilection to use compulsory purchase orders (see www.catarena.org), why have the council not used one on this derelict eyesore in Sydenham Road?
I first wrote about it in February 2004, yet it remains untouched and unloved.
Instead of providing much needed accommodation for human beings, this decaying carbuncle is merely providing a home for flocks of pigeons.
The owners and Croydon council should be ashamed of themselves for not ensuring that this building is used for the purpose for which it was intended."
