To approve the Community Asset Transfer of Yeadon Town Hall to Yeadon Town Hall Community Interest Company by way of a 50 year full repairing and insuring lease for nil premium and peppercorn rental.
The Director of City Development and the Director of Communities and Environment submitted a joint report which sought approval for the community asset transfer of Yeadon Town Hall to Yeadon Town Hall Community Interest Company (CIC) by way of a 50 year lease at nil consideration and peppercorn rental.
Responding to a Member’s request, assurance was provided that Guiseley and Rawdon Ward Councillors would continue to be briefed as appropriate on the proposals, with specific reference to the war memorial and related memorial plaques which affected that Ward.
Also responding to a Member’s enquiry, assurance was provided that when Community Asset Transfers were being considered, a consistent approach was taken by the Council with the aim of ensuring that the most beneficial outcome for the local community was secured.
(a) That a 50 year full repairing and insuring lease for Yeadon Town Hall to Yeadon Town Hall Community Interest Company for nil premium and a peppercorn rental, be approved;
(b) That it be noted that the Director of City Development is responsible for negotiating and agreeing final terms and granting the lease, subject to dealing with any issues relating to the trust that may arise;
(c) That it be noted that the lease is conditional on the Yeadon Town Hall CIC changing its status to become a CIC limited by guarantee; with the Council having representation on the CIC’s board, and with the board representation being agreed in accordance with the Council’s Appointments to Outside Bodies Procedure Rules.
