Cllr Ray Theodoulou, Cabinet Member: Finance and Change sought approval of the Schedule of Disposals proposed to meet the three year ‘Meeting The Challenge 2’ capital receipt target of £60 million covering the period 2015/16 to 2017/18.
Having considered all of the information, including known proposals and the reasons for the recommendations, Cabinet noted the report and, in line with the Policy for the Disposal of Property:
1) Confirm that those sites described at Appendix A (Exempt) which have previously been declared surplus by Cabinet in September 2016 and not yet disposed of, continue to be declared surplus to requirements
2) Declare the sites listed on the proposed Schedule of Disposals Appendix B (Exempt) surplus to the Council’s land and property requirements,
and in relation to both these schedules, delegate authority to the Head of Property Services to dispose of the sites in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance and Change.
Prior to the discussion, members were advised that, should Cabinet wish to discuss the contents of the exempt information at the meeting, consideration would need to be given as to whether the press and public should be excluded from the meeting in accordance with Regulation 4(2)(b) of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012. Cabinet agreed to consider the item without reference to the exempt information.
