Approval has been given to a release of the restrictive covenants affecting the former Seacroft Congregational Church in return for a net share of the proceeds of sale. The Church marketed the site with a guide price of offers in excess of £250,000 and have since accepted an offer over the guide. In the event that a purchaser makes a conditional offer on planning and requires the Council and the Church to enter into an agreement for the release of the covenants, this report also gives approval to do so. Approval has also been given to the transfer of a small strip of land, as defined in the report, as part of the overall deal to rectify a boundary discrepancy. Terms for the proposal are set out in the confidential appendix of this report.
