Decision details

Community Asset Transfer - Hoylake Community Centre

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report by the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management sought to remove the requirement for Hoylake Parade Community Centre (HPCC) to repay an element of the cost of building works as part of the Community Asset Transfer process.  Members had previously approved the transfer of Hoylake Community Centre, in accordance with the Community Asset Transfer policy, and had also approved the use of the Community Fund to provide revenue support, in the sum of £104,500, over two years and capital works totalling £516,000.


The transfer would promote the Council’s Corporate Policy to Increase enterprise and promote greater independence and choice.  There would be a saving in the Council’s budget as a consequence of this transfer and the transfer was not a Statutory duty.




That the transfer of Hoylake Community Centre proceeds, with the proviso that HPCC are not required to repay £115,000 towards the repairs out of future profits, as previously agreed.
