A CONSULTATION into the use of a historic Grade II listed building is to remain open for a month.

A CONSULTATION into the use of a historic Grade II listed building is to remain open for a month.

Bexley council's Draft Manor House Conservation and Management Plan, which will lay out the future decisions affecting the use of Sidcup Manor House ends on August 28.

The draft plan includes details on how the building will be restored, maintained and managed along with uses for the building which forms part of the conservation area around The Green, Sidcup.

As part of the Bexley First programme, services at the building - which is one of the most popular wedding venues in the borough - may be removed after five years.

The precise use of the buildings beyond 2014 will be kept under review as part of the consultation but it is likely that some council staff and other occupiers will be relocated to the offices above Hadlow Road Library in Sidcup or Bexleyheath sites.

Copies of the report are available at Sidcup Library and other libraries in the borough, at Wyncham House, 207 Longlands Road, Sidcup, or at the Contact Centre at Bexley Civic Offices, Bexleyheath, and on the council's website at www.bexley.gov.uk.

The final version of the document is likely to be formally adopted in late 2009.
