Proposed New Long Stay Car Park (Reliance House, Long Street)

Proposed New Long Stay Car Park (Reliance House, Long Street)

Dursley Town Council are pleased to announce that we completed the purchase of Reliance House (former newspaper office) site in Long Street, Dursley. The Town Council bought the site for £475,000, a sum that was significantly below the asking price.

The Town Council's aim is to use this prominent town centre location for a long stay car-park, which will benefit visitors, walkers, business owners, traders, employees and local residents. More »

We previously announced in June that our aim was to obtain planning permission for the demolition of the existing building and to create a new car parking facility for the town. This permission was confirmed by Stroud District Council in September following a huge display of public support.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Neil Grecian said "a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes and I am pleased that we have achieved our objective of securing the purchase of this plot in 2017. Now the next phase commences to facilitate the construction of a new long stay car park for Dursley."

The Town Council have appointed a new Committee to facilitate and manage the car park project, this new Committee will be chaired by Cllr Symon Ackroyd.

Cllr Ackroyd said "I am pleased that my fellow Councillors unanimously appointed me as Chair and I look forward to progressing this project in the new year. There is a lot of work in front of us and the new Committee will be meeting in January to agree a consultant to advise the Council through the procurement process and to allow the appointment of the best contractor.

Cllr Ackroyd noted "the site will remain unoccupied prior to the demolition of the building; the site is subject to quite strict conditions and unfortunately it is not possible to meet the planning conditions to allow temporary use by the public".

For further information on this project, please contact the Town Clerk at clerk@dursleytowncouncil.gov.uk or telephone 01453 547758. » Less
