26/09/2019 - Proposed lease of the unused Herne Bay BMX Park ref: 872    For Determination

Decision Maker: Regeneration and Property Committee

Made at meeting: 26/09/2019 - Regeneration and Property Committee

Decision published: 09/10/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

RESOLVED: To grant Ryse Hydrogen Ltd a lease of the former BMX park to enable them to develop a facility for making hydrogen for use as an alternative to fossil fuel, initially for London buses, but potentially for a local market in the longer term.

 

Reasons for the decision: The land currently had limited options. This action provided an opportunity for the company to develop an alternative to fossil fuels, with potential environmental and employment benefits.


26/09/2019 - Lease of former Homebase building, Wincheap Industrial Estate, Canterbury ref: 871    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Regeneration and Property Committee

Made at meeting: 26/09/2019 - Regeneration and Property Committee

Decision published: 09/10/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

RESOLVED: 

  1. To authorise the Head of Property & Regeneration to conclude negotiations on the potential lease
  2. To authorise the Head of Legal Services to enter any legal documentation necessary to complete the transaction

 

Reasons for the decision: Agreeing a lease on this site as swiftly would be advantageous financially and would bring a large unit back into use which would improve the look and feel of the area.


26/09/2019 - Reference from the Canterbury Forum ref: 869    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Regeneration and Property Committee

Made at meeting: 26/09/2019 - Regeneration and Property Committee

Decision published: 09/10/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

RESOLVED: That a report be considered by the council which set out what the alternative sites for the expanded park and ride provision were and included evidence of the benefits of the park and ride service.

 

Reasons for the decision: It was important to understand whether alternative options to the proposed site and whether an expanded service was still desirable as the proposal would result in the permanent loss of habitat.


26/09/2019 - Proposal to dispose of Old Dover Road Hostels ref: 870    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Regeneration and Property Committee

Made at meeting: 26/09/2019 - Regeneration and Property Committee

Decision published: 09/10/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

RESOLVED: To authorise the Head of Property and Regeneration to dispose of the Old Dover Road hostels on the open market, at best consideration and in the most advantageous way for the council.

 

Reasons for the decision: The council is in the process of acquiring other temporary accommodation which is of better quality and is within the district. Refurbishment options do not represent good value for money to the Housing Revenue Account, which is also facing other significant financial pressures.

Wards affected: Barton;

Lead officer: Marie Royle
