To consider a report of the Executive Member for Housing and Regeneration.
The Executive Member for Housing and Regeneration submitted a report which sought approval for the Council to proceed with granting a 99 year lease to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester (at an undervalue) to enable them to invest in the building and reinstate the asset as a Youth Facility to benefit the children in the Locality of Partington. In discussion a broad welcome was expressed for the proposals, which would involve partners with a creditable track record in promoting participation in constructive activities and physical exercise in an area where need existed, and whose population included the highest proportion of young people in the borough.
(1) That approval in principle be given to the grant of a 99 year lease of the former Partington Youth Centre on similar terms to the draft heads of terms included in the report.
(2) That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director for Place to finalise and agree the heads of terms in order to facilitate the grant of a lease.
(3) That the Corporate Director of Governance and Community Strategy be authorised to enter into any legal documents required to finalise the transaction.
