Well, we thought we were almost there...but...
Following a very significant meeting at Halifax Town Hall on 1st October 2018, it’s fair to say we’re feeling somewhat happy!
For the last few months we’ve been negotiating with the Holywell owner to complete the pub purchase. But the overage clause he wished to include was simply unrealistic and we couldn’t possibly agree to it. The owner wasn’t prepared to proceed without such clause included so negotiations broke down.
Calderdale Council have been working with the Holywell Community Pub Ltd, and the Holywell owner for almost a year now to broker a deal between the two parties, however in light of the breakdown in those negotiations, we requested that the council consider a Compulsory Purchase Order, to acquire the freehold of the property.
