Yesterday’s court hearing to decide the fate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home, did not prove as decisive as everyone had hoped. The judge has postponed the outcome and will not give a verdict until the end of July.
This must be so frustrating for all the fans and supporters who gave up their day to sit in court. To me, the decision is clear – this historic building absolutely must be protected from unsympathetic development. It will be a national disgrace if we, as a country, fail to take action against plans to destroy the home of one of our greatest writers and turn it into a housing development.
I don’t understand why the judge has delayed the decision (unfortunately I couldn’t attend court myself due to my husband being in hospital) and hope that ultimately sense will prevail.
At least no decision is better than the wrong decision.
