What is a platypus Anchor? As one is going to be used on a wall near me to
hold it up with some props until the conservation mob decide what to do with
it. Personally, to me it looks like it needs to be removed and the
foundation remade and rebuilt again. I don't see what you can do with an old
wall that is in that condition on a listed building boundary.

Brian,

It seems that Platipus Anchors is a company rather than a particular
product. They specialise in "earth anchoring systems" which description
apparently covers a large range of different devices and techniques.

So without more specific details, it's not possible to say exactly what is
proposed in your case.

In case your software can cope with it, their website is at

https://platipus-anchors.com/

I hope this helps but fear it doesn't much.

Bert

Likely that is what they will do after a year or few.

I don't see what you can do with an old wall that
is in that condition on a listed building boundary.


You presumably meant what else.

What is the postcode or address of this property so we can have a
peek on Google earth?

It's spelt with an I not a Y, so that should probably take all notions
of it being some duck-bill shaped thing out of mind!

And platipus is just a company name, that specialises in ground anchors

Sounds like some tie rods and plates will be driven into the ground
using a portable rig, and will be able to support the wall, maybe
temporary, maybe permanent, guess that depends on the condition of the wall?

I think there is more that can be done, provided that expense is no
problem. You can see that with the leaning tower of Pisa. They seem
reluctant to demolish the old campanile and build a new one.


Although it's unusual to go to such trouble with a garden wall, could
they underpin it? Whilst doing that, they could perhaps try to rotate it
more towards the vertical.

There's the Pitt Arch on Hampstead Heath, which dates from 1750. It's
been undermined by a tree which must be almost as old, and the Heath
authorities have simply installed a permanent steel prop to hold it (the
arch) up.

There's really no end to what can be done with other people's money.

Like farmers, district nurses, vets, publicans, shopkeepers? Take a look
at a few villagers that have no broadband at all.

It says what it says, but I had not realised it can be a company. That was
not inferred in the planning application.
First time I'd seen it.

When I googled the word it said it was a rare Australian animal that lays
eggs.

You should have googled the phrase. I got that as the first hit.
