EXEMPT
14/10 GRESHAM UPDATE

The Executive Director, Economic Development and Communities submitted a report that gave an update of the position with regards to Gresham and recommended that options are developed to take the project forward.

The background information was outlined in detail in the report.

 

It was becoming likely that the Council would be required to use its CPO powers to complete site assembly, a process that could take up to 18 months to complete. An opportunity was therefore presented to take a step back and consider how, in light of the changing market circumstances, the project could be taken forward, including a broader consideration of the type of development that the site could accommodate, such as non-residential uses.

 

The next stage if approval to proceed was received would be that these opportunities would be explored over the next three months and a further report would be produced, which would consider the options available to take the project forward and achieve the Council's vision for the area.

 

ORDERED

 

The recommendations outlined in the report were approved.

 

REASON

The decisions were supported by the following reason:

To deliver the best possible development for the town.

 

The decision will come into force after five working days following the day the decision was published unless the decision becomes subject to the call in procedures.
