Why Is The Steeplegate Building In Ely Still Empty

PUBLISHED: 14:01 30 April 2009 | UPDATED: 10:51 04 May 2010

AS there is often a great deal of fuss made about neglected properties in Ely, may I ask why the lovely Steeplegate building in the High Street is still empty? I pass it every day and remember the beautifully decorated windows and the delightful tearoom.

AS there is often a great deal of fuss made about neglected properties in Ely, may I ask why the lovely Steeplegate building in the High Street is still empty? I pass it every day and remember the beautifully decorated windows and the delightful tearoom. It now looks dilapidated and run-down which I feel is a great shame, particularly as it's in such a prominent and picturesque position.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what is happening about it?
