THE ENVIRONMENTAL Protection Department (EPD) has scored a major legal victory in its battle to demolish the derelict Speightstown, St Peter home of the man who composed the music of the National Anthem.
Justice Pamela Beckles discharged the injunction which had prevented the EPD and its contractors from touching the Chapel Street two-storey building of Roland Edwards.
But their hands are tied for at least seven days as the court granted Douglas Trotman, the attorney for Edwards’ grandson Randolph Woodroffe, a stay of execution.
The 19th century stone building has been earmarked by the EPD for demolition since 2003 and came within days of being torn down in May 2008, but was saved by a last-minute court injunction. (HLE)
