Franco Lumba, owner of FL Trading Limited, ignored warnings of officers and proceeded to remove the floor in an old bingo hall. The property is a Grade II listed building and his actions earned him a hefty £75,000 fine.
Before the Crown Court on Monday Lumba entered a guilty plea for the removal of the floor between August 24 and October 26, 2010.
The court heard prosecutor, Richard Heller accuse Lumba of ignoring the warnings of officers.
Mr Heller said, 'The entire floor had been reduced to rubble. The brick walls were noticeable in excess of one metre.
'The floor was an intrinsic part of the building. Even if restoration is achieved, because the floor has gone, the historical material from which it would be built would not be available anymore.
'Mr Lumba has made the site more open to development.
'Mr Lumba was warned on numerous occasions. These warnings were ignored.'
Lumba refused to meet with the Kingston Council planning officers and even said that the council could pursue legal action is necessary.
Lumba's defense attorney, Philip Evans claims that the 45-year-old suffers from dyslexia and his actions are due to his reading and writing capabilities.
