The Head of Legal, Equalities and Democratic Services presented a report in respect of the disposal of land owned by the Council at Far Moor Lane to Homes England.
The Council had already agreed to declare the land surplus at a meeting of the Executive Committee held in March 2015. The report provided an update on the position that had since been reached by the Council.
1) the disposal of the site off Far Moor Lane (noting as per Executive decision in 2015) be noted and to approve the terms for this disposal as outlined in the exempt report at appendix 2; and
2) that authority be delegated to the Head of Legal, Equalities and Democratic Services and the Executive Director of Finance and Corporate Resources following consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Corporate Management to negotiate and agree the Heads of Terms in accordance with the terms agreed and to proceed with the sale accordingly.
(During consideration of this item Members discussed matters that necessitated the disclosure of exempt information. It was therefore agreed to exclude the press and public prior to any debate on the grounds that information would be revealed relating to the financial affairs of any particular body (including the authority holding that information)).
