To enter into a 125-year license agreement on
a peppercorn basis with the freeholders of residential property on
Beechcroft Drive to allow access over Council land, together with
the inclusion of a termination clause.
1. Authorised the Strategic Services Director, in consultation with the lead Councillor for Resources, to negotiate and enter into all property documentation required to grant licence agreements with the freeholders of Beechcroft Drive for less than best consideration.
2. Approved the allocation of £11,000 revenue to cover the Council’s legal costs associated with the drafting and execution of the licences relating to Beechcroft Drive.
This recommendation would provide the residents of Beechcroft Drive with an alternative access route to avoid having to enter/exit the residential street via the A3, as well as formalising the arrangement which relates to the Council’s own land ownership.
Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:
