This former paper mill site, listed Grade II was put on the market at an asking price of £1.5M, with full planning consent for conversion into six residential units. Any sale was jeopardised, however, by the fact that planning consent was due to expire on February 26th. An application to extend consent was subject to an objection by Bath Preservation Trust on the grounds that no attempt had been made to weatherproof the buildings over the last two years. It has been reported that an 18 month extension has now been granted.
