Acquisition of Depot Site for the Waste Collection and Cleansing Service

25 April 2019


A report presented to council provided details of cabinet's decisions on 9 April 2019 in relation to acquiring a depot site for use in connection with the waste collection and cleansing services, given that the existing contractor had advised that they wished to retain their own depot facilities (Pier Road) for their own commercial use and would not be letting the council or its contractors use the facilities.

The report stated that the council was recommended to add this scheme to the capital programme. In addition, there was a constitutional requirement that cabinet decisions relating to land and property transactions over £500,000 must be reported to the next council meeting for information.

An exempt appendix provided detailed costs of acquisition and the enabling works needed.

The portfolio holder for resources, Councillor Gulvin, supported by the leader of the council, Councillor Jarrett, proposed the recommendation set out in the report.

On being put to the vote, the motion was carried.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
