Ramsey Civic and Business Hub and Pedestrianisation Project

Town Council News

Huntingdonshire District Council has been actively promoting its Market Town Strategy and the re-opening of its market towns after Covid-19.

Funding has been obtained from the Combined Peterborough and Cambridge Authority to undertake this and it was confirmed at their board meeting in March of this year that Ramsey was to receive £595,000 toward a Civic and Business Hub and Great Whyte Pedestrianisation Project. In order to receive this grant the Town Council will have to match fund the project to the amount of £240,000. More »

The aims of the project are to acquire and develop a new civic office and business hub on the Great Whyte revitalising the Town centre, local economy and wider civic society. It will also provide environmental enhancements on the Great Whyte between New Road and Little Whyte to create space where residents and visitors alike can meet in a zone that is amenable to outdoor gatherings.

The Town Council made a provisional offer for the empty TSB building which would meet the needs of the new office and business hub, this has recently been accepted.

There has been a great deal of debate at Town Council meetings since March regarding the project. The minutes of which you will find on the website https://www.ramseytowncouncil.gov.uk

Obviously to raise £240,000 we would need a loan of some kind which would normally be a cost to the local taxpayer. However, we currently rent our existing office space, with greener energy usage for the new building and the ability to rent out office space it is envisaged the cost will be neutral or at least minimal. To clarify this a proposal was made at the July Council meeting and I quote "It had never been Council's intention to increase the precept to cover the cost of the move. It was felt that loss of rental expenditure along with anticipated rental income and energy savings would manage these costs. To clarify this a proposal was put forward by Cllr Mrs Rayment, seconded by Cllr Brereton that any shortfall from the rental income for the first three years be taken from reserves." This was unanimously approved.

If anyone wishes further clarification or wishes to make comment on the project please email the Clerk on ramseytc@ramseytowncouncil.org.uk » Less
