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 has endorsed:

1)   disposal of the freehold estate of approximately 0.55 ha (1.35a) of land and buildings known as Yapton Road Poultry Farm, Yapton Road,  Middleton on Sea, West Sussex, PO22 6DY (Part of Holding 87) as identified on the  plan at Appendix A; and
