Rivoli Ballroom: Strictly no demolishing!

English Heritage have acted swiftly in response to local concern and given grade 2 listed status to the Rivoli Ballroom in Crofton Park. As reported in local papers the current owners are looking to retire, and put the ballroom on the market. There were concerns that as the building was not protected and not in a conservation area, it could be demolished and turned into flats. The grade 2 status means that this can not now happen, which is great news. Let's hope a buyer is found who will manage to run the Rivoli as a viable business, with the ballroom preserved in its full glory. Full story on Brockley Central.
