Breckland Council members will be asked to approve the transfer of council-owned land at Besthorpe to a housing association for redevelopment.

A report to cabinet members seeks approval for the transfer of land at Norwich Road to Peddars Way Housing Association and the release of a restrictive covenant affecting the garage forecourt, both at nil consideration, to enable the redevel-opment of the site to accommodate a two-storey three-bedroom house with integral garage.

Breckland Council members will be asked to approve the transfer of council-owned land at Besthorpe to a housing association for redevelop-ment.

A report to cabinet members seeks approval for the transfer of land at Norwich Road to Peddars Way Housing Association and the release of a restrictive covenant affecting the garage forecourt, both at nil consideration, to enable the redevel-opment of the site to accommodate a two-storey three-bedroom house with integral garage.

The document says Peddars Way has advised that, if approved, proceeds from the sale will be recycled in the development of social housing or associated facilities within the district.

To support the redevelopment of the site, the report says that Peddars Way will also require rights of access over the adjacent council-owned track.

The council's district valuer has been contacted and, in his opinion, for the transfer of the land, the release of the restrictive covenant and for rights of access, the consideration payable should be £34,000.

Councillors will discuss the report at a cabinet meeting next Monday.
