Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitutiondo hereby:

 

(1)       Agree that the acquisition of the Order Lands will facilitate the assembly of land for construction of the Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub (PCAHH)which will make a very positive contribution to the achievement of the promotion or improvement of the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the area.

 

(2)       Authorise the making of a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) under the provisions of Section 226 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 to secure the acquisition of the land and interests within the sites concerned.

 

(3)       Authorise the Strategic Director for Place to seal the order and to take all necessary steps, including the publication and service of all statutory notices and presentation of the Council’s case at public inquiry, to secure confirmation of the Compulsory Purchase order by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and the vesting of the land in the City Council.

 

(4)       Authorise the Strategic Director for Place (in the event that the Secretary of State notifies the Council that it has been given the power to confirm the Order) to confirm the Order, if he is satisfied that it is appropriate to do so.

 

(5)       Authorise the Strategic Director for Place to approve agreements with the landowner setting out the terms of withdrawals of objections to the Order including where appropriate the exclusion of land from the Order.

 

(6)       Authorise the Strategic Director for Place to make deletions from, and minor amendments and modifications to the proposed Order and Order Plan or to agree to refrain from vesting any land included within the Order if appropriate.

 

(7)       Authorise the Strategic Director for Place to negotiate terms for the acquisition by agreement of any outstanding interests in the land within the Order prior to confirmation.

 

(8)       Agree the following re-housing and compensation arrangements for the displaced residential occupier of 14 Holcombe Close:

 

a.    Requests from owner-occupiers for disposal of their homes in advance of the confirmation of the Order will be dealt with quickly.

b.    Compensation for owner-occupiers will be paid in accordance with the law on compulsory purchase and relocation assistance will be offered in accordance with the Allocations Policy (January 2021) currently in operation.

c.    Discretionary Home Loss and Disturbance payments will be made available to all qualifying residents seeking relocation.

 

The Reasons are that there is a compelling case for compulsory purchase of the Order Land to facilitate the comprehensive re-development of the area as part of the Creating a new Pendleton initiative including the construction of a new Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub.   

 

Assessment of Risk - Medium

The council has been unable to acquire the remining property by agreement. However, it is necessary to pursue a CPO to ensure the Council can build out the order lands.  The council believes it has a compelling case  ...  view the full decision text for item 3b

Pendleton Affordable Housing Phase 2/4 Development (see also item 6a) pdf icon PDF 294 KB

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

 

I, Councillor Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitutiondo hereby approve the recommendation from the Pendleton Development Board that the next phases of development identified in the Initial Development Appraisal in the report is brought forward.

 

The Reasons are that approval of the Initial Development Appraisal will enable the council’s developer partner to bring forward the next stages of mixed tenure development in Pendleton including significant investment into Clarendon Park, greenspace and public realm.  The mixed tenure proposals include 575 new family homes and apartments with 173 new affordable homes and a developing plan for a proposed Extra Care Scheme.  The next stage will be to carry out detailed design and site analysis, gain planning approval to confirm costs and sales values and upon satisfying the Licence conditions in the Development Agreement and submit a Final Development Appraisal for the council to approve prior to the drawdown of the land. 

 

 

Assessment of Risk - Medium

The initial land values are indicative of the available information and market understanding at this point of the development.

 

The partnership continues to manage cost risk in the knowledge that significant land contamination and groundworks were required in early phases and construction inflation is an issue.  Whilst build costs have been based on the latest available knowledge at Phase 3 until further survey and due diligence work is undertaken a true estimate of the cost is difficult to assess, and a contingency fund has been included to manage this risk.   This decision recommends the partnership develop the scheme further providing more certainty on cost, obtain planning approval, etc. 

 

The partnership continues to manage sales risk in the knowledge that property values can go down.  Whilst it is anticipated that the cost of living crisis, increasing energy prices and other external factors will impact the property market the appraisal uses recent sales values achieved at the Phase 3 development on site and this is considered a reasonable assumption to progress the scheme.  Further monitoring and market intelligence will continue to be carried out and fed into the final development appraisal.

 

The drawdown of the council land will be subject to a separate decision based on a completion of a detailed Final Development Appraisal.

Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub (see also item 6b) pdf icon PDF 362 KB

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Tracy Kelly, Deputy City Mayor, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitutiondo hereby approve the proposals detailed below on the provisionally agreed terms:

 

1.    Continuing the development and reporting strategy of the Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub project (Leisure Centre).

 

2.    The in principle ring fencing/allocation of the anticipated overage payment from the Pendleton Phase 3 works and envisaged future receipts from the next phases of the Pendleton redevelopment towards the Leisure Centre as required.

 

3.    The acceptance of the Sport England grant formalised via the signing of the Lottery Funding Agreement and Deed of Dedication documents.

 

4.    The placing of a restriction on Salford City Council’s freehold legal titles at the site of the new Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub as security for a Grant from Sport England for a maximum term of 25 years from the date of the signing of acceptance of the Grant.

 

5.    The Revenue and Financial challenges associated with the new Pendleton Community and Health Hub Project (Leisure Centre)

 

The Reasons are that it allows for the strategy for the Pendleton Community Activity and Health Hub (Leisure Centre project to proceed given the current context of the capital and revenue challenges that exist.

 

 

Assessment of Risk - High

 

A high-level appraisal for both capital and revenue costs have been undertaken. Assumptions for inflation and risk allowance have been made but it will only be as the project progresses through each Work Stage that actual costs are known.

 

Funding arising via the Redevelopment of Pendleton is anticipated.

 

There are grant terms to comply with – not onerous.

Repayment of any expended grant would be required should the project not proceed.

Changes to the agree scheme need to be signed off by the grant funder.
