Minutes:

The Chair had agreed that this item be considered as urgent business in order that the relocation of Hanley Crouch Community Association could take place as soon as possible to enable the much needed development of new housing at Crouch Hill Court.

 

 

RESOLVED:

(a) That Hanley Crouch Community Association be granted a ten year lease of the Brickworks, with a five year rent review, at an initial annual rent of £19,437 per annum, which was in line with the usual VCS rent practice, subject to a personal concession to Hanley Crouch Community Association, reducing the rent to £17,000 per annum, to reflect the need to move Hanley Crouch Community Association to facilitate development of its existing premises and on such other terms and conditions as the Corporate Director of Resources, in consultation with the Corporate Director of Housing and Adult Social Services, shall agree.

(b) That the Corporate Director of Resources, in consultation with the Corporate Director of Housing and Adult Social Services, monitor the continuing need for the rent concession and the ability of Hanley Crouch Community Association to pay the rent reserved in the lease until the five year rent review

 

 

Reasons for decision

The relocation of Hanley Crouch Community Association would enable the development of further new housing at Crouch Hill Court. The lower running costs, reduced rent and larger floor space at the new Brickworks community building would provide Hanley Crouch Community Association with a sound basis on which to develop a sustainable operating model and to continue to deliver services.

 

Other options considered

None.

 

Conflicts of interest/Any dispensations granted

None.
