At a Special Meeting of the Cabinet on 27th April, I asked Cllr Richard Bell how the inclusion of a conference centre within the Council's Headquarters, alongside the reopening of the DLI Museum & Art Gallery, will stimulate private sector interest at Aykley Heads.
"This proposal provides the option for civic accommodation to be used as a conference facility within the wider Aykley Heads employment site, which will enhance marketing opportunities for the Aykley Heads site. Can Cabinet please explain the current level of interest in developing Aykley Heads by the private sector, and how a conference facility at the north end of the site, and the (already approved by Cabinet) reopening of the DLI Museum & Art Gallery at the south end, will stimulate private sector interest."
