Permission to proceed with the commencement of Compulsory Purchase Orders

The Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing explained that the Council’s Empty Property Strategy had previously been approved. Empty and derelict properties had an adverse impact on communities and this report was the last resort in a long process of attempting to engage with the owner of the property which had been derelict since 2004. No progress with the owner had ben made. There were also other properties in other parts of the Island which would be considered for the same process. The local member spoke in support of the recommendation.


The Corporate Scrutiny Committee had noted the recommendations in the report.
