Purpose:

To provide information following a review of the Active Land Management Framework and identify any issues and reset the focus of the framework and programme going forward.

Decision:

RESOLVED that:

 

1)           the new list of sites be adopted;

2)           the re-active land management work be brought to a close;

3)           minor amendments be made to the framework, primarily to the options appraisal and planning process; and

4)           the income generated from the disposals of Tranches 1 to 3 be ring-fenced to fund future options appraisal(s) of the Active Land Management Programme.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council’s land management resources are limited; therefore, the focus needs to be on pro-actively assessing the sites which have the greatest potential and which are the best use of the limited resources in an attempt to fulfil the Council’s income generation targets.
