Nigel Slack asked the following questions: ‘It was interesting to see the name Mount Pleasant featuring on today's agenda. I fondly hoped there would be some positive news about the purchase of Mount Pleasant House, in Sharrow. Sadly not, this was concerning a Compulsory Purchase Order in Chapeltown.


Interestingly the Mount Pleasant in Sharrow has been empty longer than the in Chapeltown and yet we see no apparent progress.


What is the state of repair of Mount Pleasant House in Sharrow? (I note windows still boarded up after three years)

When do SCC expect to sign contracts for the sale, if at all?

Is it time that Council admitted the failure of this sale and return to the discussions with the Community Enterprise 'Avenues to Zero' to finally save this listed building from dereliction?’



Councillor Cate McDonald responded to this question. She stated that contracts were signed in June, and that the property had been handed over to its new owners. She said that the owner had drawn up plans for repairs and that the property would reopen in the near future once these repairs had been carried out.
