Crowborough Town Council have decided to release a statement to update residents on developments relating to their purchase of Pine Grove from Wealden District Council.
Councillors have decided to call the new facility “Crowborough Enterprise Centre”. In principle the Town Council offices will be relocated from the Town Hall into the building and subject to the Council’s solicitor being satisfied with the arrangements, Basepoint will be appointed to operate the Enterprise Centre.
As stated in the minutes of the Full Council meeting on 13th September the anticipated opening date is Autumn 2017.
In view of the Pine Grove meetings having to be held in closed session it was AGREED the Locum Town Clerk should prepare a statement to the public which would include: the agreed name of the building, the Basepoint involvement, advising that a cost consultant shortlisting is being undertaken, the D1 approval, anticipated Autumn 2017 opening and future launch. This information would be given to Crowborough Life, the Courier and put on the Council’s own website, also including the survey about the Council’s proposed move in order to get the public view.
Now contractual negotiations between the two councils have concluded, CrowboroughLife has today asked the Town Council to reveal the purchase price to the public.
Another special council meeting is to be held tonight (Friday 30th September) to agree the appointment of a cost consultant for Pine Grove. In addition the decision on who to appoint as the new Town Clerk will be confirmed. Click to see the Agenda and Minutes of Crowborough Town Council.
