Decision details

Allocation of Community Housing Fund Monies to Purchase and Refurbish 21 Heathfield Drive, Knaresborough:

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

That, on completion of the sale of 21 Heathfield Drive to Knaresborough Community Land Trust (KCLT) at market value and with appropriate legal safeguards, £100,000 Community Housing Fund (CHF) be allocated to KCLT towards the cost of acquisition and refurbishment.

 

Reasons for the decision:

It is important that the council support communities in the district who want to provide affordable housing to meet the needs of their community.

 

Alternative options considered:

Not to allocate the funds towards the purchase and refurbishment of 21 Heathfield Drive to KCLT, a long-term problematic empty home would mean the potential loss of affordable housing for the local community.
