Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economy

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To approve the granting of a new lease to Winget Bowls Club to increase the size of their demise to include additional land for them to build an extension to their current clubhouse.

Decision:

To approve the granting of a new lease to Winget Bowls Club to increase the size of their demise to include additional land for them to build an extension to their current clubhouse.

Reasons for the decision:

Authority for this new lease will enable the Winget Bowls Club to improve their facilities for the benefit of their members as part of the provision of sports/recreation in the Podsmead area adjacent to the proposed southern sports hub.

Alternative options considered:

1.     Asking the Bowls club to reconsider the location of their extension – Due to layout of existing building and site constraints there are limited alternative options. The cost of resubmitting planning application and the time delay would impact on the funding and delivery of the extension.

2.     Not granting the new lease would mean the Bowling Club would have the offer of £30,000 of Sports England funding withdrawn, meaning the extension would not be able to be constructed.
