(b)       approve the grant of a new 50 year lease of that land to Hayfield International Limited for the construction of a new Horse Riding School, on terms and conditions as described in  the remainder of paragraph 3.4 of the report; and

(c)        authorise the Head of Legal and Democratic Services to formally conclude missives in connection with the linked property transactions in (a) and (b) on terms and conditions as are necessary to protect the Council’s interest.


The Committee resolved:-

to approve the recommendations.
