The Committee considered the report of the Director of Service Delivery updating Members and seeking approval of a revised lease agreement for the Millfields Caravan Park at Burnham-on-Crouch.
The report set out background information regarding the development of the Millfields Caravan Park, tendering process completed in 2012, planning conditions applied and a summary of key issues. Detailed legal advice was also set out in the report along with options for Members’ consideration.
The Chairman moved the recommendations as set out in the report. This was duly seconded.
During the debate a number of questions were raised, and information provided by Officers in response. There was some discussion regarding the current and proposed use of the site and Members were reminded that the proposed scheme gave opportunity for the Council to generate income on the site.
It was noted that the report referred to a cost / base analysis being attached at Appendix 1 to the report, however this was not attached. In response the Chairman suggested that Members may wish to take this matter to the Finance Working Group with a report back to this Committee in January 2020. Further debate ensued.
The Chairman advised that as there was currently a proposal (to accept the Officers recommendations) already seconded the Committee would have to consider this and should it be lost then other proposals could be considered.
In accordance with Procedure Rule No. 13 (3) Councillor W Stamp requested a recorded vote. This was duly seconded. The Chairman put the proposal to accept the Officers’ recommendations and the voting was as follows:
For the recommendation: None.
Against the recommendation:
Councillors Mrs P A Channer, M F L Durham, M R Edwards, K M H Lagan, R H Siddall, N J Skeens, W Stamp, C Swain, Mrs M E Thompson and Miss S White.
The motion was therefore declared lost.
The Chairman then proposed that this report along with the missing appendix be considered by the Finance Working Group and a report brought to the next meeting of this Committee. This was duly seconded. In accordance with Procedure Rule No. 13 (3) Councillor N J Skeens requested a recorded vote. This was duly seconded, and the voting was as follows:
For the recommendation:
Councillors Mrs P A Channer, M F L Durham, M R Edwards, R H Siddall, W Stamp, C Swain, Mrs M E Thompson and Miss S White.
Against the recommendation:
Councillor N J Skeens.
It was noted that Councillor Lagan had lost connection and therefore did not vote.
The Chairman declared that the recommendation to send the report to the Finance Working Group had therefore been agreed.
RESOLVED that the report of Millfields Caravan Site along with the missing appendix be considered by the Finance Working Group and a report brought to the next meeting of this Committee.
