The Old Grammar School Site
What will be the future of this site? The lease to the Joseph Allnatt Centres ran out in 1997 and the site was sold by Dorset County Council in part to The Welfare Dwellings Trust. Part of the site was given to Swanage Town Council. The building is not listed, and the area is within the settlement boundary. Was the use of this Town Council land ever considered by the Town Community Partnership? The WDT is an equity release private family company who have made several unsuccessful attempts at getting planning permission. However the site remains undeveloped and must be a drain on the company resources. Lloyds bank as principal lender presumably holds the deeds.
Thanks to John Winterbottom for this research.
