Asset Management, Culture & Housing Cabinet Member – Minutes – 21 May 2014
The corresponding report of the following item (Minute 98 refers) contains exempt information as defined in Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).
98 (48) COMMUNITY ASSET TRANSFER – THE ANGEL AND BUTTERCROSS – The Director of Places submitted a report considering an application for a Community Asset Transfer of the Brigg Heritage Centre at the Angel and the Buttercross, Brigg.
The first floor of the Angel housed the Brigg Heritage Centre. The first floor of the Buttercross was recently remodelled; it was used by the council as well as for community events. The Ancholme Valley Heritage Trust had submitted an expression of interest under the council’s Community Asset Transfer Policy. They wished to take a lease of the first floor of these two properties. The report contained further information about this matter.
The application met the criteria set out in the council’s Community Asset Transfer Policy, subject to the provision of a satisfactory revenue budget and business plan.
Although not the decision maker, Councillor Rob Waltham had declared his status as a member of the Brigg Heritage Centre and the Ancholme Valley Heritage Trust, in accordance with Regulation 13 2 (d) of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2013. A dispensation in accordance with Regulation 13 2 (e) had been granted to reflect this.
Resolved – (a) That the principle of a Community Asset Transfer of parts of the Angel and the Buttercross, Brigg, on the basis set out in Option 1, at paragraph 3.1.1 of the report, subject to the council receiving an acceptable business plan from the Ancholme Valley Heritage Trust, be approved; (b) that negotiations progress with the group to determine the most mutually beneficial terms possible to take the matter forward, and (c) that final terms be submitted to the Cabinet Member for consideration and approval via the Property Transaction Schedule at a later date.
