Decision details

Decommissioning of Old Dover Road Hostels

Decision Maker: Community Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The facility is in need of significant investment. The committee will be asked whether to cease the service at this location or to request the budget provision to bring the hostel up to standard.


That the hotels at Old Dover Road be decommissioned and ceased to be used for letting as temporary accommodation.


Reason for the decision:  Agreeing to decommission the properties would allow officers to explore the asset value, and if there was a future agreement by the council to sell the properties, this would improve the financial health of the Housing Revenue Account.
