Buying Scarborough Buildings Only Option to Ensure Station Revamp Plan

Councillors wanted to avoid the buildings becoming "cheap flats"

Scarborough Councillors say taking ownership of two buildings in the town centre was the only way to ensure the planned station gateway project could go ahead.

The authority is going to buy Pavilion House and the Old comet building to enable plans for a revamped station area and transport hub to go ahead.

Councillor Paul Riley says the buildings are key to the scheme.

The Borough Councils Cabinet has this week given it's backing to the plan to buy the two buildings near to the railway station. They felt it was necessary to enable the plans for a revamped station gateway and transport hub to go ahead.

Councillor Carl Maw says if the council didn't step in then the buildings would probably have been developed for residential use.
