Brief Update

Since our last update which reported Cllr Oppenheimer as saying that Haven Cottage was being sold for £500,000 we have been informed that the actual price paid was in excess of that sum. For reasons of confidentiality we are not able to report the actual figure at this stage but it is important that we clarify that the figure promulgated by HCC was not the sum paid.

Whilst any increase in the receipt from Haven Cottage is good news, the remaining amount needed by HCC to raise their target of £1.3million would be even more significantly reduced, by some £520,000, were HCC to accept our offer to continue to locate their visitor facilities in Haven House, as they have been doing for the last nine months, rather than provide alternative facilities in the yard. As THCH is the only potential purchaser who would be likely to offer this, it would be central to any bid we put in to HCC, if we decide that any further proposal is worth making.

We will make a decision on that in the next week and will let you know what we decide to do.
