To dispose of a small area of HRA owned land located within Exeter.


To dispose of a small area of HRA owned land located in Exeter.

Reasons for the decision:

This site is very small, only 70 square metres in total, and is an island of Housing Revenue Account land, with no other ECC owned land adjacent to it.


The area is currently used for occasional car parking and bin storage for a number of houses within the area.


Due to the small size of the site it is not possible for it to be developed on its own. Exeter City Council is unable to use the land for any worthwhile or productive use, therefore it is deemed suitable for disposal.


Alternative options considered:

The Housing Development Team have looked into the possibility of developing the HRA site, but following some initial design work and liaison with Planning it was deemed not possible.


No other use for the land can be established.
