Man pleads guilty in Greenside case

  • Comment

The man responsible for knocking down Greenside, the Grade II-listed house designed by Connell, Ward and Lucas, has admitted to flattening the building illegally.

Appearing before Woking Magistrates, David Beadle pleaded guilty to unlawful demolition of the Modernist gem in November 2003.

Beadle was prosecuted after he decided to tear down the 1937 house (AJ 18.12.03), even though a holding directive had been issued to stave off a demolition order granted by Runnymede District Council.

He will now appear before Guildford Crown Court for sentencing.
