Staple Hill - 87 Broad Street - Consultation on the Future of Property

The Council has adopted procedures to ensure that before any decision is taken to release or reallocate property there is a wide circulation of details to its Departments and Members, together with relevant Town/Parish Councils to ensure that any possible Council uses, or uses the Council might wish to support, are identified and examined in detail.  

The property is shown edged red on the attached Plan (0.12ac/0.04ha approx. area). 

The property is a detached house built around the turn of the century, on the main high street, adjoining Page Park. The property has been leased out as a women’s refuge but all service users have now vacated the premises and the tenant is undertaking dilapidation works which means they should be able to hand it back at the end of July with vacant possession.  The ASB and Community Safety Team have confirmed that they have no further service need for this property. Environment and Community Services have also declared this property surplus to their requirements. 

I would like to ensure that any alternative realistic interest in the property is considered. A report on the site will then be prepared with a recommendation as to whether it should be retained or disposed of.The general views of those consulted will be included in the report. If no other Council or Council supported use is identified; it is intended to seek authority to dispose of the site on terms to be negotiated by Property Services.


This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience General public, Police, Town and Parish Councils
