& Country Housing have approached TWBC to acquire a number of
small parcels of land that have remained in the ownership of the
Council since the transfer of the housing stock to TCH. This is to
consolidate their landholding as part of their plan to redevelop
the Estate. The intention is to agree an option to purchase now
& for the matter to complete once their own plans are ready to
proceed. Currently there are 13 parcels amounting to a total of
454.9 m sq. The land are predominately footpaths or highway. The
firm of GL Hearn were instructed to provide a valuation in
September 2022 which was accepted by both parties. The total value
of the parcels of land has been calculated at £27,134.
TCH are currently assessing whether other parcels may be required as part of the need to accommodate he cycle path that is planned to pass through the area.
