Proposals for the Future of the Hostel at 222 Victoria Road

Richard Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridge City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cambridge City Council,

A meeting between the management of the hostel at 222 Victoria Road, local residents, and the police held on the 12th of October 2011 was told of a grant application to the Department for Communities and Local Government for reducing the number of rooms at the hostel and introducing facilities to enable providing residents with more intensive programmes. The meeting was told the City Council had supported the grant application.

I would like to request the release of all information held by the council in-relation to the application and the proposals for the future of the hostel. I expect the council will hold a copy of its letter of support, and the material on which it based the decision to support the application.
