Disposal of part of PCC rural estate in
accordance with the disposal strategy approved in September
Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to:
1. Agree conditionally, subject to final assessment as set out in paragraph 4.6 of the report, to the proposed disposals of four farm holdings as set out below and detailed in the confidential appendix with final decision about disposal and terms to be delegated to the Executive Director of Resources and the Director of Legal in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance and Corporate Services.
2. Note the proposed marketing for disposal of the vacant Turves Farm.
The Council needed to secure capital receipts in this financial year and up to 24/25.
The Council could continue to let the estate on the Farm Business Tenancies and Agricultural Holdings Act tenancy agreements that are currently in place. However, this will not enable PCC to fulfil its requirement for significant capital receipts and there is the continued liability of needing to supply grain stores and improve the infrastructure across the estate.
