Minutes:

The Executive Member for the Economic & Commercial Portfolio introduced the report which requested approval to transfer all rights and interest in the land adjacent to “The Brambles”, Steggs Lane, Westfield, Dereham to the Parish Council.  He explained that he had tried to convince the Parish Council that Breckland Council did not own the title to this land.

 

The Land Management Officer said that this was just one of many pieces of land, known as former highway sites, that there was not any legal paperwork for that proved that the land had been transferred to Breckland Council as it had all been handled through an Act.

 

For this piece of land to be transferred to the Parish Council would be subject to a covenant restricting the use of the land to amenity purposes only.  The land had been valued at £5,200 and Members were being asked to transfer the rights at nil consideration.
