Colville Estate – Two drop-in information surgeries about Compulsory Purchase Order

Posted on Updated on

Leaseholders in Lucan House, Jordan House, Felton House, Harwood Court and Harvey House, have recently received CPOs, as part of the next stage in the process to buy back their properties and make a way for the new homes to be built.

Council officers and PPCR will be holding drop-in sessions at the Colville Community Hall, 35 Branch Place, on:

  • Thursday 30 January, 3pm to 7pm
  • Tuesday 11 February, 3pm to 7pm

This is your chance to have your queries relating to the redevelopment of the Colville Estate answered.

Without a CPO in place as a precaution for use as a last resort, the regeneration of Colville may suffer lengthy delays.

The Council must make a case that the CPO and regeneration of the estate are in the public interest to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local government, who may confirm, modify or refuse the CPO. The Secretary of State can then appoint an inspector, who investigates whether the CPO would be in the public interest.

For those who intend to make a formal objection to the Colville CPO the end of the representation period is 18 February 2014 .
