Regeneration and Health & Strategic Projects Cabinet Member – Minutes – 4 December 2015

Following the amalgamation of Priory Lane Infant School and Priory Lane Junior School onto a single site, the former Infant school’s site and building were now surplus to the requirements of the People Directorate.

The site and building was currently owned by the council.  Declaring the building surplus allowed options including much need housing to be considered.

Resolved – That the proposal to formally declare the building surplus be approved.

2 (2) SURPLUS BUILDING CROWLE YOUTH CENTRE – The Director of People submitted a report seeking approval to declare the Crowle Youth Centre site and building surplus to the requirements of the People Directorate.

The council had recently invested and developed the Market Hall in Crowle.  Youth services were now delivered from the Market Hall.  Market Hall was used for a range of community-based activities, including Positive Youth Activities.

Declaring the building surplus allowed current use by the Boxing Club on licence and formal community use was to be developed.

Resolved – That the proposal to formally declare the building and site surplus be approved.

3 (3) SURPLUS BUILDING ON BURNHAM ROAD, EPWORTH – The Director of People submitted a report seeking to declare Burnham Road Day Centre surplus to the requirements of the People Directorate.

The council had invested significant capital resources to refurbish Epworth Youth Centre to create the Epworth Community Wellbeing and Youth Hub and the transformation of Day Services meant that people’s needs were met through a range of different options, including personal budgets and access to activities at the Epworth Hub.

The Burnham Road Day Centre, Epworth was no longer in use.

Declaring the building surplus allowed other options to be considered for the building.

Resolved – That the proposal to formally declare the building surplus be approved.
