Meeting: 16/04/2019 - Finance and Corporate Services Committee (Item 2065)

Renewal of Lease Burnham-on-Crouch

To consider the report of the Director of Resources, (copy enclosed).

Additional documents:


The Committee considered the report of the Director of Resources seeking Members’ consideration of a request not to increase the rent of a site in Burnham-on-Crouch in line with District Valuer’s recommendations.


Members were reminded that in order to comply with the Local Government Act of 1972 the Council was required to obtain best value for any lease transactions it undertook.  To satisfy this requirement, the District Valuer was engaged by the Council to provide an independent valuation.


The report provided background information regarding the rent charged for a site in Burnham-on-Crouch and the recent Valuation Office proposal for an increase in rent.  In response to this the organisation currently using the site had provided several reasons against the proposed increase and these were set out in Appendix 1 to the report. 


RESOLVED that rent charged to the Burnham-on-Crouch Golf Club is increased in line with the valuation provided by the District Valuer.
