Durness folk deny anger over 'John Lennon house' plans

DURNESS residents deny they are "angry" at any proposals to demolish the house where John Lennon spent many of his school holidays, contrary to national newspaper reports over the weekend.Members of the local community council, at their meeting on Tuesday night, discussed the articles which claimed that the current owners of 54 Sangomore, Richard and Vanessa Stanton, were looking at knocking it down.Planning permission to alter and extend the house was approved in 2010, but it is understood that subsequently, because of the state of the property, it would now need to be demolished and a new house built.Community councillors agreed that the house is in a state of disrepair and are sympathetic to the Stantons' belief that there needs to be a complete rebuild.The members hope, though, that a commemorative plaque on the wall of the house will remain.
