The Council has bought Bronzeoak House in Stafford Road, Caterham, an empty building which has become derelict over the past two years, attracting anti-social behaviour. The site benefits from a central location in Caterham with good access to local shops and public transport and was purchased for £2.2 million. The property was formerly a health centre, but for the past few years has been used for office accommodation.
The property has planning consent for 34 flats, but the Council is considering alternative options for the best use of the site. Its closeness to the town centre makes it an ideal location for affordable rented housing for which there is a huge demand in the area.
