Freehold transfer of strip of part of Sparkwell Playing Field to Sparkwell Parish Council
DCC is transferring a former playing field at Sparkwell to a Free School on the instructions of the Secretary of State for Education. The majority of the site can be transferred directly to the Free School using the existing authority for academy leases. However there is very small strip of land which abuts the village hall which is owned by the parish council. The combined area will also be leased to the Free School and will be the site of the new school building which will also double as a new community hall for the village.
DCC will transfer the freehold of this strip to the Parish Council so that the lease for the building is with one entity only to avoid the complexities that arise in drafting a lease that deals with a building which straddles land in two separate ownerships.
A copy of this decision and any supporting documentation considered by the Officer taking this decision may also be made available or inspection by the public at the Council’s Offices or posted upon payment of any copying and postage charges. Any member of the public wishing to take up either of these options is asked to please ring 01392 382888 or email: email@example.com
