Werrington Police Station

27 June 17

Decision:

To approve the offer of £65,000 from the new purchasers to surrender the leasehold interest in Werrington Police Station.
That in the event that terms are not agreed, or the surrender does not complete, delegated authority is given to the s151 officer to accept the best available offer to sublet the lease (subject to landlords consent).

Decision Summary:

The Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Business Coordination Board meeting on the 22nd June 2017 discussed and agreed the proposal of the landlords offer received and seek approval to proceed with the surrender of the lease of the unit based on the information set out in the BCB paper presented to them, as set out below:

  • Werrington Police station is subject to a long lease which terminates on 31st March 2083 (66 years remaining). The lease is at a peppercorn rent but subject to a service charge.
  • Due to lease restrictions on the user and subletting clauses, both planning consent (for a change of use) and landlords consent (to vary the user and subletting clauses) is required.
  • The Werrington Centre is in the process of being sold and discussions to end the Police lease have resulted in an offer of £65,000 being made to the Police.
  • The surrender will release the Police from future tenant default eg. Service charge and the requirement for the unit to be re-let.

that in the event that terms are not agreed, or the surrender does not complete, delegated authority is given to the s151 officer to accept the best available offer to sublet the lease (subject to landlords consent).
