Issue details

Amended decision on the sale of a building to most effectively support the re-provision of the Council’s homeless accommodation.

Purpose of Report: To substitute the previously approved sale of 92 Holgate Road for the sale of 27 and 28, St Marys to most effectively support the re-provision of the councils homeless accommodation.


The Executive is asked to approve the sale of 27 & 28 St Marys on the open market to the highest bidder instead of 92 Holgate Road and, if the highest bidder is not necessarily the best offer, then to delegate to the Corporate Director of Health, Housing and Adult Social Care (in consultation with the Chief Finance Officer or her delegated officers) the authority to take such steps as are necessary to accept the best offer. In order to provide more modern and appropriate resettlement accommodation at 92, Holgate Road (which is no longer needed for temporary accommodation following the opening of James House) and to obtain an improved capital receipt to the authority. This will most effectively support former homeless/rough sleepers with finding permanent accommodation.
