13, High Street, Launceston - Cornwall (UA)

Jettied and timber-framed corner house, prominent on town's market square. Roof structure and upper level party wall in poor condition. Some of the structural work undertaken but condition of building remains serious. A recent application for replacement of an C18 window has been modified by subsequent negotiations to a repair of the existing window. However, there is no sign of comprehensive repairs being undertaken and recent inspection revealed the rear of the building to be in a deteriorating state with plastic sheeting protecting the walls.
