Motion in the name of Cllr. Alison Gilliland

The Planning and Urban Form SPC seeks that when a DCC owned piece of land exceeding 300 square meters is presented for disposal that the disposal report include an in-depth independent assessment on the site  potential for, in the first instance, housing and in the second instance community enhancement such as additional recreational, sporting, artistic etc. This independent assessment shall make a recommendation as to the type of housing or community use including a costing of developing the site for such use and the potential return (financial, community value, no of families housed) to the Council should it be developed. The assessment should provide guidance as to whether and to what extent the monetary benefit to the council from disposing of the site outweighs the long-term social and economic benefit foregone in terms of the necessary development of housing and other public uses.  Furthermore should any site be disposed of such a disposal shall be conditional to a development agreement to submit a planning application and to commence work on the site so as to prevent the land from being hoarded or left unused.
