land sell off.

9 posts in this topic

I don't know if people have read about allerdale councils plans to sell off land in Workington, but one large plot is the old training pitch next to the bridge.

I happen to know town have a very long lease on that land and there is already strong intrest in buying it.

Town would obviously be entitled to substantial compensation should the land be sold.

In July 1956, Town took out a 198 year lease on the land with the Workington Urban District council, the forerunner of Allerdale Borough Council and they relinquished part of the land when William Low's (now Tesco) was built.    So, by my reckoning they still have 140 years remaining on the lease which must be worth something.    The council would have to compensate Town for any loss if they sold that part of the land.

It is difficult to say unless  we know first if anyone wants the land and secondly what they want to do on it as that will increase or decrease the value.  I think when Low's bought the land for their supermarket Town received about £450k, I'm sure if I'm wrong someone will correct me.   Mind we were supposed to build a running track around the pitch but ended up with a speedway track instead.

Another £450k would be nice! Is that feasible?

 

It's feasible if they can find someone interested in buying it.

 

The bit of land in the triangle of William Street (Dolly Brow), Church Street and main road in front of Allerdale House is also for sale
