Decision details

Grant of Tenancy at Will in respect of Unit 9 Midleton Enterprise Park to Sailor Food and Beverages Ltd

Decision Maker: Assistant Director: Assets and Property

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Terms have been agreed with Sailor Food and Beverages Ltd for a new 5 year lease of Unit 9 Midleton Enterprise Park. This was approved under a DA dated 5th June 2024.

Sailor Food and Beverages require use of the property on prior to completion of the lease to store a shipment of its products. Therefore this DA is for the grant of a Tenancy at Will (TAW) to permit storage use ahead of completion of the lease.

A use and occupation charge of £12,000p.a. will be contracted by this TAW but no alterations will be permitted and the permitted use will be for storage only. It is hoped that the Lease will proceed to completion within 3 months.

If you have any queries, then please contact George Musgrave who can provide further information.

Reasons for the decision:

This decision must be completed to enable completion of a Tenancy at Will to allow this incoming tenant to store its items in the property ahead of lease completion.

Alternative options considered:

We have offered the tenant full use of the property once the Lease completes but they need to store these items once their shipment arrives, and therefore a TAW seems the best solution.
