Compulsory Purchase of 52 Reading Road, Ipswich, IP4 4NR

52 Reading Road is an empty property, which has been empty for approximately 7 years. Informal approaches to encourage this ideal family home to be returned to use have been unsuccessful.

 

Ipswich Borough Council has powers under the Housing Act 1985 to compulsorily purchase the property to facilitate the property being returned to use. The report will request that Executive resolve to make a compulsory purchase order.
