Site Purchase - Valley Social Centre

Decision Maker: Policy & Resources Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The report recommends the purchase of the land by the council using a new HRA capital budget funded by commuted sums. The report has not had time to be considered by Housing Committee, prior to consideration by Policy & Resources. Senior officers and the Leader of the council are aware of this but due to the urgency of the situation are happy for the report to go straight to P&R.


RESOLVED: That the Committee


(i)            Authorised the freehold acquisition of Valley Social Centre at the

appropriate price following independent valuation advice.


(ii)           Approved budget for this acquisition will be added to the 2019/20 HRA capital programme and will be funded from commuted resources held by the council. Further detail is included in the part 2 report.


(iii)         Agreed that delegated powers be given to the Executive Director of Neighbourhoods Communities & Housing, the Executive Director Economy, Environment & Culture and the Executive Lead of Strategy, Governance and Law to agree terms for the acquisition.
