Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Following the review of the estates target structure, it was concluded that the farmhouse and buildings of Mill Lane Farm, Cranage would not be required for the provision of opportunities to farm. On the 17th August 2016 the sale of the farmhouse, buildings and an area of land shown edged red on plan A on the open market upon terms to be determined and approved by the Assets Property Manager was approved.  Following a period of marketing approval is sought to vary the approved decision, to amend the boundary of the property to be sold from that shown in Plan A to that shown in Plan B.


That approval given to amend the decision of the 17th August 2017 concerning the area to be sold to authorise the sale of land to that shown edged red in Plan B.


Reasons for the decision:

The sale of this property is consistent with the approved management strategy for the Farms Estate and the variation does not prejudice the Councils retained interest in the adjacent land.


Alternative options considered:

Other options include referral back to the market unchanged.
