To seek approval to settle the rent review
The Assistant Director, Financial Services and Revenues presented a report to seek approval to settle the rent review at Hastings and St Leonards Angling Association.
Land at Marine Parade is leased to Hastings & St Leonards Angling Association for use as a clubhouse and boat compound. Their lease is for 20 years from December 2013 with 5 yearly rent reviews and the first review is due on 9 December 2018.
In order to deal with any potential conflict of interest between Hastings Borough Council and the Trust an independent valuation of the reviewed rent has been obtained from Dyer & Hobbis.
The Chair proposed amending the recommendation to clarify that the Committee will delegate authority to the Estates Manager in consultation with the Chair.
The Committee was informed that at the Coastal Users Group meeting on 12 March 2019 this item was not called for discussion.
Councillor Rogers proposed a motion to approve the recommendations in the report, subject to the proposed amendment, seconded by Councillor Batsford.
That Charity Committee delegates to the Estates Manager in consultation with the Chair the authority to settle the rent review.
Reasons for recommendation:
The lease contains a provision for a rent review.
