Consultation on the Proposed Sale of Ground at Cove Road, Gourock (former McLean’s Yard) - CLOSED

Inverclyde Council is considering the possible sale of the above site and recently set a closing date for offers from parties wishing to buy it. The Council is keen to hear the views of the community on the proposed uses of the site, so these can be considered when a decision is reached on which (if any) of the offers received to accept.

Three offers were received all proposing residential developments. The type of development proposed in each of the offers is as follows:

  1. a single, detached, 4 bedroom house;
  2. a pair of semi-detached houses; and
  3. a three storey tenement style block of flats.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposed sale may do so by no later than the 29th September 2017 either by email to:

property@inverclyde.gov.uk

or in writing to

The Head of Legal and Property Services,
Inverclyde Council,
Municipal Buildings,
Clyde Square,
GREENOCK,
PA15 1LX

This proposal is scheduled to be considered by the Council's Environment and Regeneration Committee on the 26 October 2017. Any comments received will be placed before the Committee for their consideration when deciding whether or not to accept any of the offers received.

The site is shown outlined in red on the plan on the documents section of this page. It was at one stage let as a commercial boat yard. It is currently surplus to Council requirements and is identified as a housing opportunity on the current Local Development Plan.  As the Council is keen to see this vacant site brought back into active use, and as a number of enquiries have been received regarding possible sale, a closing date for offers was set.

The site forms part of the common good of the former Gourock Burgh, and whilst that does not of itself prevent the sale of the site, the Council remains keen to hear the views of the community before any decision is made.  If the site is sold, funds realised in that sale will go into the Common Good Fund. This is a fund administered by the Council for the benefit of the people of Inverclyde and utilised to provide financial support for a diverse range of local community activities.

You can find out more about the common good and the Common Good Fund at www.inverclyde.gov.uk/commongood

All of the information on this page is available in a downloadable PDF format in the documents section.
