To consider matters relating to land at Turners Place, Rochdale.
The Township Committee considered a report of the Director of Economy that related to an area of land that had been considered incapable of independent development adjacent to a successful flat development at Turners Place, Rochdale. There were issues regarding the inability for bin wagons to service the property safely and a minor area of trespass that needs remedying. The proposed land sale deals with all these issues.
The land in question could be retained, but this would mean that bin wagons would continue to struggle to service the development safely and the Council would continue to own the site and its liabilities without any beneficial return, financial or otherwise.
That the land at Turners Place, Rochdale as identified in the Director of Economy’s report, be declared surplus to requirements and that it is released for disposal to the developers of the flats.
Reasons for the decision:
The recommendations in the report were presented in order to create a safe turning facility for the Council’s bin wagons to service the site and to remedy a minor trespass issue.
Eligible for Call-in: Yes.
