At the board meeting on August 10, the council approved the sale of the property as it had been vacant since 2018 when the last tenant moved out.

Speaking at the meeting, Mayor Preston said, “It sounds like this has three advantages. One is treating an eyesore that has been vacant for three years and is currently boarded up.

“Second, it will bring some revenue to the church, which is great, but more importantly, it will bring some revenue to the local church because if this is sold above our value there will be a 3 percent contribution to the community “.

The Mayor had previously agreed that the people of Nunthorpe receive a 3% contribution when the local council sells their own land for development, provided it is included in the local plan and the sale is near / above the target price.

However, there are strict restrictions on the development of the farmhouse and the outbuildings.

The council has stated that there will be a restrictive contract for the area which means the house can only remain as a single apartment to prevent developers from building separate houses or apartments.

There were concerns that the farmhouse could become a target of vandalism and antisocial behavior if not sold.
