Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

                                      

I Councillor Paula Boshell, Deputy City Mayor in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution do hereby approve Urban Vision to progress detailed negotiations with Salford Foundation Ltd associated with the transfer of the St Mary’s Centre, St Mary’s Road, Eccles by way of 125 year lease at a peppercorn rent.

 

The Reasons are the St Mary’s Centre is occupied by Salford Foundation Ltd who  use the property as a women’s centre.

 

A recent inspection has found that the roof is no longer watertight and would cost circa £50,000 to re-cover. Under the terms of the lease the Foundation is required to keep the property in no worse state of repair and condition as on the date they took occupation, this obligation does not extend to recovering the roof.

 

The Foundation has put forward a proposal to demolish and replace the current building on broadly the same footprint with costs to be met by the Foundation. This would be on the basis of a long term lease (125 years) at a peppercorn rent. The building would deliver a new women’s centre together with enhanced services which would benefit the Council.
