New bid launched to develop derelict Teucer House

A search has been relaunched for people interested in investing in a derelict Cedar Avenue property.

The Ministry of Public Works has invited expressions of interest for Teucer House in Pembroke, which was previously earmarked as a potential site for a guesthouse.

A notice published on the government procurement website stated: “The building is at the moment derelict, but the site has potential for reuse either by refurbishment or redevelopment.

“The site/building has recently been cleaned up and prepared for redevelopment. The existing structure is meant to be retained as part of a proposed redevelopment scheme for which full planning/development permit has been granted.

“The approved drawings will be made available if any interested party would like to adopt them.”

The submission deadline is 3pm on August 14 with site visits available starting June 1.

Teucer House was built in 1903 as a private home and bought by the Government in 1955.

The building has been used as a health clinic, the home of Probation Services and as the offices for Teen Services, but it later became vacant.

The structure was damaged by fire in 2013, which destroyed the building’s roof and upper floor.

A plan to restore the building to its original condition was submitted in 2015, but work never began.

The Government put out a request for proposal to restore the building in 2019 and a proposal to turn the derelict building into a boutique guesthouse was given the green light by the Department of Planning in 2021.
