Reference: D817

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Resources and Reputation

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

To seek approval to sell the land adjacent 33 Richey Close, Arnold (the Land) shown hatched pink on the plan at Appendix 1.

Decision:

THAT:
1)Approval is given to sell the Land to the Purchaser for the Price for use as garden land. The Purchaser shall be required to erect and maintain a fence along the boundary of the Land within 6 months of completion. The Purchaser will be responsible for the Council’s fees

Reasons for the decision:

Sale of the Land would ensure that the Council does not have any ongoing liability for the Land.
Sale of the Land will give the Council a capital receipt.

Alternative options considered:

One alternative is not to sell the Land. However, this would mean that the Council would not receive a capital receipt and would continue to have the maintenance liability.
Another alternative is to let the Land out as garden land. However, this would only generate a minimal income. Furthermore, the resource required to administer this could render this option unviable. Sale of the Land would therefore appear to be the better option.
