Disposal of Land at Former Kirkholt Working Men's Club

Additional documents:

  • Restricted enclosure 2
  • Restricted enclosure 3


The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Director of Neighbourhoods that report sought approval for disposal of Council land at the former Kirkholt Working Men’s Club, Kirkholt, to Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) at nil value. A plan detailing the location of the property was appended to the Sub-Committee’s report.


Alternatives considered:

Various alternative options were outlined in the Director of Economy’s report.



1.               The Sub-Committee notes and acknowledges the wider benefits and improvements that the redevelopment of this site, as set out in the submitted report, will provide which therefore justify the disposal at nil value;

2.               The Sub-Committee agrees to dispose of the site detailed in the report to Rochdale Boroughwide Housing for nil value in order to enable development of the site by Rochdale Boroughwide Housing for affordable housing;

3.                The Sub-Committee agrees to delegate the approval of the final heads of term for the disposal of land at the former Kirkholt Working Men’s Club to the Director of Neighbourhoods and the Director of Resources once agreement has been reached between Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale Boroughwide Housing.

Eligible for Call-in: Yes.
