1)   approve the sale of land owned by the Council to the rear of Hardwick Street in Shirebrook for market value as set out at paragraph 1.5 of the report.


2)   delegate authority to the Director of Development to agree the final sales price and the remaining terms and conditions of the sale and sale agreement.



The offer to purchase the Council’s land was for market value and the land had limited utility for the Council having recently entered into the purchase of a similar sized piece of employment land at another site with unfettered access.



The alternative option of retaining the land in the Council’s ownership was rejected.
