Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
The report before Cabinet outlined proposals for funding to convert Grange Farm complex into a business centre which could potentially be let to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
The following decisions and recommendation was made as Grange Farm had been previously let to a horticultural company . The main horticultural production facility (poly tunnels), had been re-let but the farmhouse which is a listed building and adjoining barn/granary buildings remained vacant. They did though have potential for re-use by SMEs as ‘rural workspace’, presenting an investment opportunity that required funding.
RESOLVED: That (i) Grange Farm be converted into a business centre; and
(ii) the sum referred to in paragraph 5 of the report be released.
Recommended: That an addition be made to the Major Projects Programme 2014/15 of the sum referred to in paragraph 1 of the report to fund the conversion of Grange Farm into a Business Centre.
