The demolition of 1-14 Brokesley Street by Telford Homes started yesterday.
The impact vibration from the demolition is currently causing serious concerns for the wellbeing of the building at 644-648 Mile End Road which is connected to 1-14 Brokesley Street via party walls
We thought Conservation Areas were supposed to protect our heritage and health!
Planning and Environmental Health have both been contacted as has Cllr Rachael Saunders, who is both the ward councillor and a Board member of EastendHomes who are responsible for the development. Let's see how long it takes to get some action to prevent this irresponsible approach to old buildings in this Conservation Area.
The simplest solution would seem to be that the connection between the two buildings must be removed as soon as possible.
This means the demolition of the end wall of 1 Brokesley Street needs to be executed as soon as possible to separate it from the party wall and thus disconnect the significant level of vibration.
