The Property Services Manager presented a report which reminded Members that the Borough Council had been involved with the One Public Estate (OPE) initiative with its public sector partners in Norfolk, and had successfully secured feasibility funding for a variety of projects within the borough. In addition, the Borough Council had successfully secured funding from the Norfolk Business Rates Pool to support the next phase of delivery in its regeneration programme for Hunstanton.
The report provided Cabinet with a progress update on the projects and sought authority to commit funds to the next stages of some of the project strands, particularly the regeneration proposals in Hunstanton.
In response to questions it was confirmed that the project was being undertaken working closely with coastal engineers to maximise the coastal defence element. It was also noted that the plans should have a positive impact all around the coastline.
RESOLVED:1) That the content of the report, which provides background and current position with the three OPE projects and the Hunstanton Southern Seafront Masterplan project be noted.
2) That agreement to the seven proposals listed in section 8 of the report be confirmed.
Reason for Decision
1 To ensure that OPE grant monies received are used as per the council’s agreement with the Cabinet Office
2 To help meet the stated objective of driving local economic and housing growth
3 To continue the council’s support to the economic development and regeneration of Hunstanton.
