Herman De Stern


One time hospital and Home of West End Theatre

The Answer is No! It comes as a bit of a shock to realize that representatives in the

past actually considered the welfare of those they represented

Herman de Stern


Covenant


To be observed at all times

Subject:       HERMAN DE STERN

From:          Doreen P.RAYNER, Chairman, West End of Felixstowe(South)Residents   Association.       Contact: 286403

I visited SCDC Offices at Woodbridge yesterday, 22nd July, 2002, where I was permitted to view copy deeds of the Herman de Stern, former Convalescent Home.


These copies actually consisted of an Indenture dated November in the year nineteen hundred between the then land owner and various other parties.    This document appears to have been concerned only with the PURCHASE OF LAND on which to build a Convalescent Home.

I copied out the following:


NO ACT, MATTER OR THING SHALL BE DONE ON THE LAND HERETO CONVEYED OR ANY BUILDING TO BE ERECTED THEREON THAT SHALL BE OR MAY BECOME A NUISANCE, NOISY, NOXIOUS, DANGEROUS, INJURIOUS OR OFFENSIVE TO THE SAID E.G.PRETYMAN, SUCCESSORS, TENANTS OR THE NEIGHBOURHOOD.


A CONVEYANCE DATED 2ND APRIL, 1979 (ONE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY NINE) WAS SIGNED BY SCDC WHO AGREED TO

OBSERVE THE SAID RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS AT ALL TIMES.


It is assumed therefore that no noisy pubs/restaurants/nightclubs (examples only) may be permitted to be built upon that parcel of land on which stands the Herman de Stern building, regardless of the era in which we live.   Neither may the building, if it remains, be used for any such purpose.    


Names mentioned in the document dated 1900.

Mr.E.G.Pretyman. the Reverend Frederick Pretyman and Wm.Joseph Jarrett. Sir Thomas Farrell, Buxton,   Marlborough Robert Pryor and Edward Murray. 1928.Trustees.  

Henry Farrell Buxton, Sir William Henry Gischen and Walter Marlborough Pryor.

This information could be useful to objectors. We do not know what is to be built on the site but if you consider it could become a nuisance, noisy, or offensive to the neighbourhood then write to SCDC reminding them of the existence of these papers.
