Economic Development at Pinnacle Close, Crease Drove, Crowland

To consider the issue of an amount of £265,000, ring fenced for Economic Development at Pinnacle Close, Crease Drove, Crowland, to build a unit for a start up children’s nursery business. The Cabinet will debate this item at its meeting on 23 July 2013.


At its meeting on 28 May 2013, the Performance Monitoring Panel raised a number of concerns regarding the proposal.  The following concerns were raised:


·        Why had there been no public consultation on this issue?

·        Had the effect on the present provision run by two charitable organisations in Crowland been considered?

·        Had the proposed provision within the former St Guthlac’s site by Lincolnshire County Council been taken into account?


The Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Commercial Assets and Strategic Planning and the Senior Economic Development Officer will be in attendance to discuss the proposals.
