Issue details

Heather House and Royal British Legion site

In 2021, the Policy & Resources Committee approved the Council pursuing a

comprehensive redevelopment of the site (including Heather House and the Pavilion Building). This has led to a successful planning application for a new community centre on the Heather House site and a new-build residential scheme of 11 dwellings on the Pavilion Building site. To help finance the new community centre, Officers are seeking approval for a CIL Community Contribution of £956,420. The scheme is included in the capital programme, approval is needed for the works cost and to appoint the contractor to deliver the scheme, as per the planning application, and to proceed with a tender exercise to procure a management provider for the proposed new community centre.
