The subject of the decision


The Estates Manager submitted a report which sought members approval of the terms of disposal of Council owned land in central Workington.


Executive considered the report proposing the disposal of an area of land at Central Car Park, Workington to North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust for the development of a new Community Diagnostics Centre.


This was agreed in principle however it had been identified that the valuation report that had been obtained did require some further information to fully comply with the technical guidance relating to S123 of the Local Government Act so an amended valuation report would be required prior to confirmation of the decision to dispose of the site.


Councillor M Fitzgerald moved the recommendation; it was seconded by Councillor A Pitcher. The motion was unanimously agreed.


Alternative options considered


Not to agree to the disposal of the land.


The reason for the decision


Members approval was required of the terms of the disposal of Council owned land in central Workington.


The decision




That subject to the receipt of an updated valuation report the Council agreed in principle to dispose of part of the Central Car Park in Workington to North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust at nil cost. Final approval of the disposal and the terms of the transfer to be delegated to the Programme Director, in consultation with the Leader of the Council and Executive Member for Economic Growth, Community Development and Placemaking in consultation with the S151 and Monitoring Officer.
