Minutes:

The Head of Regulatory Services introduced the report which clarifies the terms of the lease as things stands at the moment. He noted that the statutory requirements have been met, the details advertised with no responses received and the independent surveyors confirm the lease terms are market rent and therefore do not pose a problem.

 

A Member welcomed the report noting that it was a significant step for the cricket club who have great aspirations to build on its status as a leading club in Mid Sussex.

 

The Chairman took the Trustees to the recommendations which were agreed by a clear majority.

11.2     having considered this report and the Independent Surveyor’s Report the Charity Trustees’ considered that it is in the best interests of the Charity to grant the proposed lease to the Club, then subject to the Club agreeing to pay costs including the costs incurred in complying with the Charity Trustees’ statutory obligations, authorise the Charity Trustees’ Solicitor to grant the lease on the terms set out in this report and the Independent Surveyor’s Report and on such other terms as the Charity Trustees’ Solicitor recommends or considers appropriate.
