Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Mrs McKay explained that the request for concessionary rent relief related to the clubhouse in Priory Park previously used by the cricket club, which is currently occupied by Chichester Bowling Club. When the cricket club moved out of the building, incidents of vandalism rose. Occupancy of the building by the bowls club has reduced vandalism, and the club have been proactive in carrying out repairs to the building. The market rent value of the building has not changed. The presence of the club ensures that this activity is available to the community. It is proposed to offer the club a six month lease and a rent subsidy against market rent.
The Panel were supportive of the request and agreed to rent subsidy requested.
