A summary of a condition survey conducted on the community centre Download Here
This condition survey suggests that the Community Centre would benefit from a full refurbishment. Gedling Borough Council go on to claim that £100k spending is required on the community centre and uses this as part of the justification for selling. Very misleading.

Also, here is the Land Registry documentation for the Community Centre Download Here
The Land Registry documentation refers to a restrictive covenant:
On page 2, the covenant states that no more than 2 houses can be built on each allotment. If this still stands and the original allotment boundaries still count, this may restrict the number of houses that a developer would be able to build on the site.
