60s Development

Postby dale » 22 Mar 2007, 09:40

Its great to for us youngsters (ahem) to see the town before the 60,s development. We have never known any different. Its hard to imagine the town before.

Does anyone know where you can read up on the councils reasons for the development.

The town must have been up in arms about the proposals, and how where the owners of the demolished buildings compensated.

Glad to see the council used such quality of design and materials that the buildings stood the test of time! i wonder how long the new units will last?

My sisters house in East street was compulsory purchased and
also turned into a car park ( Austin St ) They were paid the
princely sum of 7 to 9 hundred pounds for the house.
They had the option of a brand new
house on fairstead, which the declined. The house in East St had no
indoor loo, hot water, or bathroom, hence the low valuation. The
house they bought in Diamond st had all mod cons £1600-1700.
Luxury :D This was at the same time that Dels dad lost his :(
PS. And I had a lot of fun pulling them down :roll:

New Conduit Street

Employment Exchange I remember it well,!!! had to go there to sign my Enrolment Papers for the forces, also remember the British Reastraunt opening initially for the people who where effected by the bombing, but also helped out with folkes rashioning if they could afford it.
There was a nice park running behind it.
I am fairly possetive that the archway was for the freinds meeting house.

I used to like the old Lynn with all the caractor in all the old Buildings. don't think as much of it as it is now,

I agree with Exlynnett, the town certainly seemed to have more character and personal identity before the 60's units were introduced.

The buildings they replaced appeared to be 18th and 19th century buildings of which many survive in the town, albeit with modern additions.

The 1960's boxes have already been replaced once with the new improved 2005 model. Many of the materials used in their construction only have a 25 year life span, so we can look forward to the same state of decay and neglect pretty soon.

Still...the planners know best. :roll:
