Disposal of land at The Warrens - main depot site

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Law, HR & Asset Management advised Members of the responses to the statutory advertising of the proposed disposal of land and designated Public Open Space at the Warrens Nursery, Thingwall, to Wirral Primary Care Trust “the PCT” to facilitate the construction of a Health Centre.  The Director of Law, HR and Asset Management requested that ‘call-in’ on this matter be waived as the wasted costs likely to be incurred by the Council and the PCT preparing for the Inquiry whilst a Call-in notice was considered by Overview and Scrutiny would seriously prejudice the Council’s and the public’s interest.


The Deputy Leader of the Council referred to the previous decision by the Cabinet on this matter being called-in and investigated.  He supported the recommendation and the proposal to waive call-in on this matter.


Resolved (unanimously) – That


(1)  the objections received be noted and the proposed disposal be agreed in accordance with its decision on 16th October 2008;


(2)  the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management be authorised to agree the premium payable, following the valuation by the District Valuer, in consultation with the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council;


(3)  the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management be authorised to enter in to the necessary legal documentation to dispose of the land to the PCT on the terms outlined in this report; and


(4)  call-in on this matter be waived and the Council be informed accordingly.
