  • Greenfield House

    Statement from Alloa Community Council – Greenfield House update Alloa Community Council held a working group meeting as agreed at the emergency meeting held in July. The meeting was attended by Keith Pulner (Kapital Residential Ltd owner of Greenfield), Luke Graham MP, Cllr Forson(also representing Keith Brown MSP), Cllr Holden, Cllr Earle, Police, Chair ACC, Secretary ACC and other ACC members It was a very positive and productive meeting. All agreed Greenfield House is an iconic building and everyone was keen the development goes ahead as soon as possible. The owner of Greenfield House outlined to the meeting the various reasons for the delay to the building work on Greenfield house including family issues and concerns about antisocial behaviour.  The benchmark for the owner when acquiring property to develop, was would he be willing to live in the location himself. The police and other people at the meeting stated that antisocial behaviour was not a major issue in the area and the police confirmed the number of calls from the Greenfield Park area was very small and they are in regular contact with the watchman. Concerns were raised by councillors including the lack of development resulting in the decline in the fabric of the building, the lack of communication and the time taken to start the development. The owner assured the meeting that he is committed to developing the building and is in negotiations with contractors to start demolishing the new part of the building, and is hopeful there will be a schedule of work in place by the end of the year.    The owner is keen to work with stakeholders, to reduce the community’s concerns.  The owner thought that some houses might be for sale and others for rent and is keen that there was a good legacy after the development has been completed. The owner stated it maybe 3 to 4 months, before they on the Greenfield site. With demolition of the new building in the new year. The building work could take 18-20 months from the start to the first flats being ready for sale.  A rough estimate was the second half of 2020. The owner stated that until about 10 years ago finance was fairly straight forward, after the Financial crash he needed to go further afield for funding, including the London Money markets.  As investors were concerned about Brexit and IndyRef2 and so were wary of lending money, however, this was not impacting on the programme. Luke Graham MP having worked in the financial industry was willing to suggest sources of capital if required.  Like the other speakers, Luke encouraged the owner to keep the lines of communication open. All present are confident the company have now engaged and will continue to engage with the council and the wider public, the security of the building will be maintained, any anti-social behaviour will be addressed by the Police, a timescale for progress has been provided, there are no impediments to the development. Everyone is eager for the development to get underway, as all parties understand the concerns of local residents. The owner has given his personal mobile details to allow for open lines of communication to all meeting members. Alloa Community Council welcome the progress made at this meeting and will give updates as and when they happen.
