As well as announcing nine new listed buildings for the Causeway Coast and Glens area, Environment Minister Mark H Durkan announced that 7 buildings are to lose their listed status.
These buildings are listed below.
- HB03/17/001 A-F 1-11 Kingsgate Street (6 properties) Coleraine. No’s 1, 3 and 5 were demolished c1998 following planning approval for their replacement. They had lost a lot of their historic detailing and fabric prior to the application. No’s 7, 9 and 11 suffered from a gradual loss of character over the twentieth century due to incremental changes resulting in their delisting.
- HB03/17/019A & B 4-6 & 8 Lime Street, Coleraine. These historic buildings have lost a considerable amount of historic fabric and detailing following alterations during the twentieth century which have resulted in them not being of listable quality.
- HB03/12/038 39 Ballywoolen Road, Castlerock, Coleraine. This former mill was listed in poor condition and alterations following its conversion to a dwelling resulted in a loss of architectural character.
- HB03/13/006 69 Killeague Road, Macosquin. This once fine thatched vernacular dwelling had been subject of a replacement dwelling approval just before it was listed in 1976. Despite the energetic involvement of officials, the building suffered a lack of maintenance which resulted in its eventual demolition.
- HB03/14/004 Chapelfield House, 59 Laurel Hill Road, Coleraine. Chaplefield House was demolished c1999. Prosecution was considered but not proceeded with as the house had been unsafe prior to its demolition.
- HB03/14/002 Red House, Castleroe Road, Coleraine. Red House was demolished c1988 following consultation with the Department. The vacant house had deteriorated and the owners were unable to secure an occupant as it was adjacent to an industrial plant.
- HB03/13/009 Second Dunboe Pres Church, 236 Windy Hill Road, Coleraine. This church was subject to alterations and extensions that detracted substantially from its character.
