Urgent business

The chair has agreed to this item being added to the agenda in accordance with Section 100B(4)(b) of the Local Government Act 1972.

 

Letting of Unit 1-2 Elmsleigh Centre, Staines

 

The chair has agreed to this item being added to the agenda in accordance with Section 100B(4)(b) of the Local Government Act 1972 for the following reasons:

 

‘Delaying the renewal of the existing letting for a fixed 5 year term, at what is considered to be the tenant’s buoyant season may result in H Samuels requesting to continue their lease on a turnover basis.  The terms of the new agreed lease are more beneficial to Spelthorne as landlord and as such any delay could see the Council lose revenue in the medium to long term. Urgent consideration of this report by the Development Sub-Committee is therefore required.’
