Decision details

136 and 138 Bedford Road, Rock Ferry

Decision Maker: Cabinet

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 the Cabinet’s approval of provisionally agreed terms for the transfer of 136 and 138 Bedford Road, Rock Ferry to Lairdside Communities Together (LCT).


This decision would fit with the Council’s goal to support the development of a bigger and stronger society.


It was proposed that 136 and 138 Bedford Road be transferred to LCT at a nominal £1 consideration using the powers of the Local Government Act 1972 General Disposal Consent (England) 2003.  The present market value had been assessed by the District Valuer at £130,000 and this amounted to the consideration which would theoretically be forgone, but the transfer would assist LCT to continue the delivery of activities which demonstrated significant community benefits in line with its business plan.  These activities focused primarily in the Birkenhead and Tranmere areas which were recognised as being deprived and sought to address important local issues such as health, worklessness, and the environment.




That the property be transferred to LCT on the terms reported.
