That as set out in Part 2 of the report the voluntary acquisition of land parcels, References 1 and 2, be agreed.
The Executive considered a report relating to the acquisition of land or property in order to facilitate delivery of Strategic Development Locations and major scheme infrastructure.
Members were advised by the Executive Member for Strategic Highways and Planning that the proposal was to acquire two small parcels of land, as set out in the Part 2 sheets in the report, to facilitate the Winnersh Relief Road and the Northern Relief Road.
Councillor Lee highlighted that currently the Executive had to approve all land and property acquisitions relating to SDL and major scheme infrastructure prior to final purchase completion and often there were very small items that had to be purchased and he felt it was unnecessary for such items to have to go through the Executive process which would slow down any such acquisitions. The Leader of Council requested that the Constitution Review Working Group be asked to review this matter and come forward with a recommendation about what sum would be an appropriate amount.
RESOLVED: That as set out in Part 2 of the report the voluntary acquisition of land parcels, References 1 and 2, be agreed.
