Decision Made
That the transfer of the land shown in the plan at Appendix B of report ES/0547 together with access across the land shown edged in brown to St James South Elmham Parish Meeting for nil consideration subject to  an overage agreement retaining 85% of any uplift in value on the grant of planning consent for any development for a period of 40 years be approved.  
Reason for Decision
The proposed transfer delivers positive outcomes in accordance with the East Suffolk Strategic Plan.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

1. To sell the property at the Market Value. The Parish Meeting are not in a position to purchase the property at the Market Value.  Were the Council to sell to a private individual the public use of the land may be challenged by the new owner which could deny the public the use of an important area for recreation.

 

2. It would be possible for ESC to retain the freehold interest in the land. Both a short and long lease were considered, which would leave the Council with the liability for the land on the reversion of any lease, but the Parish Meeting preferred to take the freehold interest. 

 

3. To retain the property and deny the Parish Meeting any involvement.  This would deliver none of the positive outcomes listed above and leave the Council responsible for the maintenance of this land. 

Any Declarations of Interest Declared
None.
Any Dispensation Granted
None.
