·       The long leasehold disposal of the Gosport Borough Council land shown edged red on the plan at Appendix A to the report together with rights of access, services etc for a term of 99 years and subject to the conditions set out in the report.

 

·       Following the completion of open marketing, to authorise the Deputy Chief Executive in consultation with Economic Development Board Chairman to finalise the terms of a new Development Agreement, Agreement for Lease and Lease of the above, complete the disposal and on completion, report back and update the Board.

 

The detail of the September 2018 report confirmed that the recommendation was to dispose of approx 5 acres of land at Home Heath, Grange Farm, to kick-start the development of a new retail garden centre by a garden centre operating company.

The new garden centre would incorporate facilities eg WC's, café and parking etc that would also be used by visitors to the adjacent Alver Valley Country Park and thus provide a substantial proportion of the amenities required for the Grange Farm Gateway into the Alver Valley Country Park.
