 Court Mead Coulsdon Lane – Enforcement review

Awaiting outcome of an Enforcement review.

 West Ridge Walpole Avenue Chipstead – Grade II Listing

Following lobbying by the CRA, a local Councillor and residents, RBBC issued a Building Preservation Order for the property in May and the house was put forward for formal listing. On 12 November the house and garden terraces were granted Grade 2 listed status. 

West Ridge was built in 1923 to designs by George Blair Imrie (1885-1952) of Imrie and Angell.  It is a good example of the work of a locally focused architect with a high reputation who worked extensively in Surrey and whose houses appeared in a number of national publications. West Ridge has been designated as having special architectural and historic interest as a strong example of a large middle-class family house of the inter-war period by a highly-regarded local architect, surviving with little external alteration and much of its interior plan and scheme of fittings and finishes intact. It therefore fully merited listing as a Grade II building.

Thanks to everyone involved in working to save a small piece of Chipstead’s heritage.
