Former Shepway Resource Centre, Folkestone - Disposal


19/05/2014 - Decision due date changed from 18/02/2014 to 01/08/2014. 

REASON: The proposed decision to dispose of the Centre was delayed while internal processes were undertaken to ensure that no other suitable use could be found before disposal.  This process is complete and the former resource centre will be placed on the market shortly.  Responses from the market will be gauged after a period of approximately 3 months and a proposal for the site put forward at that time.  The decision will be considered by the Property Sub-Committee or the Policy and Resources cabinet Committee before being taken by the Cabinet Member.
