EXEMPT
14/24 AREA REGENERATION OF EASTERSIDE

The Executive Director, Economic Development & Communities submitted a report that sought approval for a combined proposal of land sales for new housing designed to enhance the centre of Easterside and the use of the capital receipt to invest in the area.

 

The proposal provided a vision for the revitalisation of the centre of Easterside. It comprised a number of integrated proposals that were intended to provide a catalyst for the renaissance of the heart of the community. The proposal would provide a much more clearly defined urban form in the centre of Easterside, which would significantly enhance and add value to the area.

 

The report outlined in further detail the key issues, the proposal and the social benefits for the revitalisation of the centre of Easterside.

 

The report outlined in further detail that there were four options available:

  1. Option 1 - Sit on the site until the housing market improves;
  2. Option 2 - Dispose of the site to a Registered Provider at nil consideration;
  3. Option 3 - Offer part of the site internally within the Council and market the remaining site; and
  4. Option 4 - Joint marketing of the Former Grove Public House site and St Agnes Church site with the Church (Preferred Option).

During the meeting members of the committee agreed in principle to Option 4, they requested that the following be considered:

ORDERED 

 

  1. That detailed public consultation be undertaken in relation to the proposals
  2. That further negotiations and discussions take place with St Agnes Church in relation to the relocation costs
  3. That further consideration be taken in relation to the overall community benefits, including the HUB and shops within the area.
