(a) Staffordshire County Council accepts NHS England’s proposal to capitalise the ground rent in the sum of £736,000 in return for a 60 year peppercorn rent and that the County Council seek to secure this at the earliest possible stage, but at the very latest upon commencement of site works
(b) Officers undertake and award a concession procurement for the pharmacy element on the basis set out in the report
(c) The Head of Commercial and Property be authorised to approve the development agreement for construction of the development
