At some point during negotiation with the two landowners, BC had decided that, of the two sites, the one to the west of Bridport Community Hospital was the best choice for them. Concern about the time the project was taking led to them deciding to fund and take up the purchase option. The plan had been for the HA to fund this as part of the whole development process, but there was concern at the risk of losing a lovely site.To pay the professional fees attached to this ‘option,’ members paid the first ‘deposits with conditions.’ This was ‘at risk’ money; we envisaged that the money would stop being at risk when planning permission was granted. This enabled members to continue to take the scheme forward. BC agreed the purchase option on the first portion (4+ acres) with the ‘hospital site’ owners.
