Halling Fire Station

The Parish Council, at its meeting held on 9th March 2016 agreed the following:

"4.   Halling Fire Station – a proposal that the Parish Council disbands the Fire Station Committee and now accepts the offer of £175,000 from Halling Baptist Church (subject to contract) maintaining the on-going covenant that the property be used for Community Use. That an overage clause stating that in the event the property is sold for development within the next 30 years a sum equal to 50% of the difference between the purchase and sale price be payable to HPC. That the land to the west of the building (access to the Lower Recreation Ground) remains in the ownership of Halling Parish Council and that a right of way be granted to the purchaser of the Fire Station to provide for their access to the rear of the building. Any net resulting income made from the sale be prioritised for use for the improvement of both the Lower and Upper recreation grounds in Halling and other property owned by the Parish Council.

It was proposed by Chris Herbert, seconded by Trevor Reynolds, that this proposal be accepted.

A recorded vote was taken with Les Hitchcock, Chris Herbert , George Wenham, Trevor Reynolds and Kelly Talbot in favour with Andy Simpson abstaining."

Councillor Herbert will formally propose that :

(1) Exchange of Contracts for the sale of Halling Fire Station  to Halling Baptist Church be effected immediately and the sale completed at the earliest opportunity thereafter in accordance with the Parish Council's decision taken on 9th March 2016; and

(2) The decision taken as a matter of urgency to commission an asbestos survey as required by a vendor of a commercial property and at a cost of £295 be ratified.

9 Precept
To consider the recommendation from the Finance Committee held on 22nd January 2018 to maintain the Parish Council's Precept for 2018/19 at the same level as the current year that is £51,500.
