EXEMPT
15/38 GRESHAM REGENERATION PROPOSALS

The Executive Director for Corporate and Commercial Services submitted a report to consider a proposal which would significantly accelerate the regeneration of the Gresham area through the acquisition of 20 properties within the proposed demolition area, and the refurbishment and re-habitation of 62 Council owned properties which are currently derelict in Wentworth and Waverley Streets.

 

The report outlined that this would free up a significant proportion of the remaining clearance area for demolition, resulting in the opportunity to bring this area forward for early development.

 

The report further outlined that the proposal would also bring significant investment and improvement to the Wentworth and Waverley properties, bringing them back into occupancy, with the associated financial benefits from Council Tax and New Homes Bonus.
 

The report gave details of the background of the Gresham Regeneration and the options available.
