Money generated from the sale of council building will be invested in community projects, it has been announced.

Buckhurst Hill Parish Council last week finalised the £470,000 sale of its former office and information centre in Queens Road, Buckhurst Hill, to developer Braveform Limited.

The council says the sale enables the council to repay the loan on the property, invest funds in projects and keep council tax at its current level.

Parish council Chairman, Cllr Aniket Patel, said: "Savings on the former property, together with the reduced outgoings since the successful relocation to Buckhurst Hill Library, will ensure that residents receive best value for their money."

The public is being asked to suggest projects for investment.
