Background Information: At the the Strategy and Resources meeting 13th November 2017 approval was to approve the transfer of the land to the CIP for development. Planning permission was granted in March 2018 for a housing development scheme at the rear of the site and, following the transfer of Council staff to other sites, work has started on that development. The plan was to submit a second linked planning application to include a relocation of the YMCA to the MRD site with additional facilities in the form of a Council owned in-perpetuity community facility. An MOU was agreed with the YMCA to try and establish an agreed deal for their relocation. It has not been possible to seek agreement with the YMCA, and therefore this report will provide an update to Members and seek approval to proceed with an alternative scheme to deliver housing at the front of the depot site.
