Made at meeting: 11/01/2022 - Cabinet

Decision published: 13/01/2022

Effective from: 11/01/2022

Decision:

The subject of the decision:

 

Further to Council approving the policy for managing community asset transfer requests between now and the intended implementation date of Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) on 1 April 2023, this report sought approval for the transfer of Topcliffe Playing Field to Topcliffe Parish Council.

 

Alternative options considered:

 

None.

 

The reason for the decision:

 

Cabinet was satisfied that approving the transfer of Topcliffe Playing Field would give the Parish Council (and the local community) greater control and responsibility over the day to day management of the playing field and would also alleviate any requirement for District Council involvement as landowner.

 

The decision:

 

That Cabinet approves and recommends to Council that:-

 

(1)     Subject to recommendation 3 below, Topcliffe Playing Field is transferred into the ownership of Topcliffe Parish Council as set out in paragraph 1.2 and 1.3 of the report for nil consideration with appropriate restrictions on future use including any restrictions and covenants imposed by the Council’s predecessors;

 

(2)     the intention to dispose of the land is advertised as described in 5.3 of the report; and

 

(3)     subject to the Director of Leisure and Communities satisfactorily resolving any issues arising from the advertisement and satisfying himself that the disposal is subsidy control compliant, that the Director has delegated authority to transfer the land identified within the report.

Made at meeting: 11/01/2022 - Cabinet

Decision published: 13/01/2022

Effective from: 11/01/2022

Decision:

The subject of the decision:

 

This report sought consideration of the findings and conclusions of a review of the Public Open Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) for the Leeming Bar Industrial Estate and surrounding area, and sought consideration whether to approve an extension or discharge of the Order.

 

Alternative options considered:

 

None.

 

The reason for the decision:

 

Cabinet was satisfied that the approval to extend the Order would respond to the needs of the community and would result in the Council continuing to work with partners to make best use of its devolved powers for local decision making.  Cabinet was also satisfied that the extension of the Public Space Protection Order was necessary in order to help reduce crime and disorder (anti-social behaviour) and to support residents’ wellbeing.

 

The decision:

 

That Cabinet approves and recommends to Council that:-

 

(1)     the Public Space Protection Order at Leeming Bar Industrial Estate which is due to expire on 7 March 2022 is extended for a further 3-years from midnight on 7 March 2022 to midnight on 6 March 2025 (Appendix 9) of the report;

 

(2)     the approach to enforcement is changed to that highlighted in paragraph 2.9 (3)(Appendix 10 and 11) of the report, and
