Substantial town centre property in need of major structural repair

Substantial, Grade II listed, town centre property in need of major structural repair This mixed use investment property was last occupied by five tenants, the Honest Lawyer restaurant, two hairdressers, an Antiques business and a residential flat. It was producing an annual income of around £38,000. Erosion of the riverbank has led to undermining of the rear, right hand corner of the property causing movement and cracking within the building. As a result a section 78 notice has been served by Allerdale Borough Council.
