JERICHO WHARF NEWS ITEM

Key meeting arranged with administrators

Posted - Dec 20, 2012

Opportunity to take the next steps on acquring the site

PWC are the administrators who are managing the vacant canalside site on behalf of HSBC. Our efforts to acquire the site have been stalled for some time because PWC say they have had to negotiate with various third parties who have “material interests” in the site.

These negotiations, which seem to have involved such issues as rights of way, have fortunately now been concluded. As a result PWC have now approached the Jericho Wharf Trust to have what they hope will be a “fruitful conversation.”

The meeting with PWC will take place in the last week in January. Following this, we will then have a clearer understanding of their requirements, and how we can best acquire the site for community use.

This development was covered in a front page article in the Oxford Times of December 20th. To read the latest version of this article please click here Jericho boatyard’s future back on the agenda.
