RESOLVED - That:
This report recommends proceeding with a stage 1 loss of Public Open Space Report and be advertised advising of the Council’s intention to dispose of public open space.
Any objections to the proposed disposal of the public open space received will be contained in a future Stage 2 report with further recommendations.
Land within Council ownership comprising c 5 acres at Snipe Clough is categorised as Public Open Space.

Option 1 The Council not to consider the
disposal of this open space.
This approach would mean that the Council would be unable to seek a partner to deliver important themes around outdoor activities which will benefit the community. (Option Rejected).
Option 2: The Council to follow its Property Protocols with a stage 1 loss of Public Open Space report which would allow the matter to be advertised with comments and objections received and reported on in a further Stage 2 report. (Recommended Option).
Option 1 was rejected.
Option 2 was recommended.
Other reasons / organisations consulted
