HARTLEPOOL, CLEVELAND, ENGLAND — Hartlepool Borough Council have now started compulsory purchase proceedings after running out of patience with the Odeon’s current owners. An advertisement in the Hartlepool Mail on 17th November refers to prospective partners approaching the council with regards to potential re-use of the Grade II listed building.
He said: “Trying to get any kind of agreement out of them is very difficult. Their valuation of the building is also extremely unrealistic.
“They are talking about £1m for the building, but we have had the building and the adjacent land valued at £60,000. That is a big difference.”
More on this can be found in the following link from the Hartlepool Mail.
