Objection to disposal


Councillor A. McLachlan, having declared a personal and prejudicial interest (Minute No. 2 refers) left the meeting whilst this item was considered.


A report by the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management referred to an objection received to the proposed disposal of land at The Oval to Wirral Metropolitan College to grant a 99 year lease to Wirral Metropolitan College of the land for the development of classroom accommodation for Sports Studies courses; and sought approval to the proposed way forward.


The report further sought approval to the Call In period being waived to enable site works to commence immediately to facilitate the opening of the new College accommodation at the start of the first 2013 term. The Acting Chief Executive agreed to this request.


The Chair raised concerns that it had taken some time for a response to be given to the objector.




(1)   the Council notes the objection and proceeds with the disposal of the land on the terms previously reported; and


(2)  that Call In be waived in respect of the above to allow works to commence immediately and Council be informed accordingly.


Councillor A. McLachlan returned to the meeting.
