The Sub-Committee considered proposals to transfer land at Amington, Tamworth from Redrow Homes Limited to Staffordshire County Council in accordance with the Terms of a Section 106 Agreement to provide a Primary School and to subsequently grant a 125 year Lease of the site following construction of the School to the Academy Trust.
Members were informed that Mr Little, Local member for the area, had submitted representations in favour of the proposal and calling for the development to provide community facilities. Brief discussion took place on the extent to which the Authority could request land from a Developer and on how the process for selecting an Academy Sponsor included consideration of commitment to the community.
RESOLVED – That approval be given to the completion of the transfer of the site from Redrow Homes Limited to Staffordshire County Council in accordance with the Terms of the Section 106 Agreement as varied, and to the grant of a 125 year lease of the site following the construction of the primary school; such transfer being in compliance with Department of Education expectations for Academies.
