8796. HIGH STREET CAR PARK:
A meeting was held on Monday 30th April. No minutes were taken as there was no-one available and it was not quorate with only 3 Councillors attending, several residents were present. Cllr. Crawford gave an overview of the meeting.
Cllr. Allin was under the impression that he could make an offer to NCC on behalf of the PC of £50,000.
The Chairman called this meeting to get a vote from all members to confirm the offer of £50,000 to NCC to purchase the car park and shop and request that it be taken out of the auction on 17th May. NCC has asked for confirmation tomorrow. A show of hands was unanimously that the offer be confirmed, subject to contract with an email before 12noon and a letter on WPC letterhead signed by the Chairman to follow by 1st class post.
Different ways of raising the money were discussed but a decision on how to pay for it was not reached as several avenues need to be explored. A valuation is needed before the PC can proceed with the purchase. Christina White from MDC Property Services has offered to do this and has requested the keys to the shop be made available to her tomorrow. Cllrs. Crawford and Kerr were authorised by the PC to liaise with Christina, MDC and NCC on this.
Cllr. Cunliffe raised her concerns over the maintenance of the car park, Cllr. Crawford answered that this could be factored in next year’s precept.
