Executive considered the report of the Portfolio Holder – Economic Development which set out possible options for the Council’s approach to the future preservation of the former Creswell Station building following the completion of a feasibility study into the viability of commercial uses of the building and potential redevelopment of adjacent land in the same ownership, which accommodated a workshop used for car repairs..
Moved by Councillor Liz Smyth and seconded by Councillor Duncan McGregor
RESOLVED - that
1) the Council’s Planning Service be requested to investigate the expediency of formal planning enforcement action and the appropriateness of issuing a s.215 notice in this case.
2) further approval is sought for funding for works in prior to the issue of a s.215 notice in the event that formal planning enforcement action is deemed to be reasonable and necessary.
REASON FOR DECISION:
The purchase and redevelopment of the site by the Council did not appear to be a viable option. It was therefore considered appropriate to remit this case back to the Council’s Planning Service for further consideration of the appropriateness and expediency of issuing a s.215 notice that could secure the long-term preservation of the former Creswell Station building in the absence of any other feasible options.
OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED:
The purchase and redevelopment of the site by the Council were rejected as they did not appear to be a viable options.
Reason Key: Revenue Income or Expenditure of £75,000 or more;
