Grange Road West Sports Centre
Meeting: 21/07/2011 - Cabinet (Item 71)
A report by the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management re-affirmed approval to transfer Grange Road West Sports Centre by long lease to Birkenhead Community Development Committee, following a change in its constitution.
The property had been originally identified for disposal under the Strategic Asset Review, and its disposal would assist in meeting the goals identified in the Corporate Plan 2011-2014 to reduce the running costs of the Council, and to support the development of a Bigger and Stronger Society.
The transfer of the property would result in revenue savings and maintenance costs as detailed in the report and the transfer was not a statutory duty.
Councillor S Foulkes informed that he had received a number of complaints from Councillor S Niblock about New Ferry Community Hall. The Director of Law, HR and Asset Management agreed to respond in writing to Councillors Foulkes and Niblock on this matter.
That the transfer of Grange Road West Sports Centre be approved to Birkenhead Community Development Committee, as newly constituted, and that the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management be authorised to implement the appropriate lease documentation.
