As part of its capital programme management, in line with the County Council’s West Sussex Asset Management Policy and Strategy, the Council continually reviews its property estate. This includes consideration of assets which are likely to become surplus to operational requirements, i.e. no longer needed. In addition, the Council acquires or develops assets to meet statutory and service requirements as well as the Council’s wider purposes, including investment or to promote social and economic development opportunities. From time to time these activities give rise to decisions to purchase, dispose of or to develop an asset.
The Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources has agreed that Court Meadow, Hanlye Lane, Cuckfield, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH17 5HN be declared surplus to service operational requirements and approved of the disposal of the County Council’s freehold estate.
Appendix B, (Part II for members only), advises on the outcome of the initial marketing of Court Meadow. The Cabinet Member has endorsed the sale to the purchaser making the most suitable bid.
