12/28 TO CONSIDER PASSING A RESOLUTION EXCLUDING THE PRESS AND PUBLIC FROM THE MEETING DURING CONSIDERATION OF ITEM 7 OF THE BUSINESS ON THE GROUNDS THAT, IF PRESENT, THERE WOULD BE A DISCLOSURE OF IT, OF EXEMPT INFORMATION FALLING WITHIN PARAGRAPHS 1 AND 3 OF SCHEDULE 12A OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT 1972.

 
EXEMPT
12/29 LAND SOUTH OF JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, MARTON ROAD

The Exectuive Director of Neighbourhoods and Communities and the Director of Resources submiited a report to update the Panel on an offer received for the residential development site known as Land South of James Cook University Hospital (JCUH), off Marton Road.

 

The Land South of JCUH was situated within the Prissick Masterplan boundary and was approximately 1.19ha in area (as shown on the plan which was attached to the report). The site used to serve as the Ashdale Pupil Referral Unit. As part of the Building Schools for the Future programme, this had been relocated to the site of the former Parkwood School. The former buildings had been demolished and the site was now vacant.

 

The report further outlined the below in detail within the report:

  • SITE OFFER
  • BENEFITS OF BIDDER'S OFFER

The report outlined that there were two options available:

  1. Option 1 - Dispose of the land to the Bidder.
  2. Option 2 - Do not sell to the Bidder and market the site. It was considered extremely unlikely that the Council would receive a higher offer for the site following a marketing exercise. An alternative developer would have increased set up costs and may also have to address the issue of an extra access point on to Marton Road. There would also be the additional cost to the Council of marketing the site.

ORDERED

  1. That the Land South of JCUH, be sold to the Bidder, for the amount stipulated within the report;
  2. That, should it be considered reasonable to make any further revision of the terms of sale as a result of further investigations carried out by the purchasers and any planning requirements, then the Executive Director of Neighbourhood and Communities and the Director of Resources be authorised to agree those changes; and
  3. That, the Executive Director of Neighbourhood and Communities and the Director of Resources be authorised to approve the purchase price for the land owned by Middlesbrough College within the Land South of JCUH.

REASONS

 

The decision was supported by the following reason:

 

In order to secure a capital receipt from the sale of the surplus land, which would be reinvested back into the Council’s capital programme.

12/30 ANY OTHER ITEMS WHICH, IN THE OPINION OF THE CHAIR, ARE CONSIDERED UGENT.

No other Business was discussed

The decision(s) will come into force after five working days following the day the decision(s) was taken unless the decision becomes subject to the call in procedures.
