Minutes of behind-closed-doors talks by the authority’s cabinet have been published today (Monday).
They also reveal that ‘immediate action’ in order for ‘a marketing exercise’ to be conducted to ‘engage developer interest’ in Knowle and Mantone Depot sites to ascertain their value.
Page 116 of the minutes of last Wednesday’s talks show that acquisition costs of the council’s preferred site at Skypark are £986,000 excluding VAT.
