The County Council’s Future West Sussex Plan set out its ambition to minimise the burden of local taxation, delivering the best outcomes for residents with the money it spends, whilst living within its means. In 2018 the County Council agreed to adopt an Asset Management Policy and Strategy. An objective of the strategy is to acquire, manage, maintain and dispose of property effectively, efficiently and sustainably, together with optimising financial return and commercial opportunities.
To accord with Standing Orders, this report seeks the approval of the Cabinet Member for Finance to grant a new ten-year commercial lease and a ten-year Farm Business Tenancy of Holding 132 Hatches Smallholdings Estate (known as Southlands Farm), West Sussex RH20 2JU.
