Local Environment

The construction of the mini tennis courts will include upgrading of fencing around the courts thus making the local environment a more attractive place.

Safe, Healthy and Active Communities

The construction of the mini tennis courts will give young children of the community an area in which they are able to be active in a safe environment.

E-Government implications:

There are no e-government implications.

Resource and legal implications:

There will be officer time spent in preparing the lease. However, the club will be responsible for payment of the Council’s legal fees.

The Council will receive an annual income for the grant of the lease.

Background

1. Haslemere Lawn Tennis Club have recently been granted planning permission under reference WA/2003/1498 for the construction of a mini tennis court on the Council’s land.

2. The area for which they have been granted planning permission is directly adjoining land for which they currently have a 35 year lease and which is shown outlined at Annexe 1.

3. The club would like to obtain committee approval for a lease of the land to allow them to construct the mini tennis court.

4. The lease would be for a term of 27 years allowing it to expire at the same time as their current lease.

5. Terms and conditions of the lease will be similar to their current lease with the exception of rent. Should approval be granted, the rent would be determined on a similar basis to the rent of their current lease.

Conclusion

6. There would appear to be no reason not to allow the club to take a lease of the land.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the land shown outlined on the attached plan is leased to Haslemere Lawn Tennis Club for a term of 27 years on similar terms and conditions as their existing lease with the exception of the rent, any further terms and conditions to be negotiated by the Property and Development Manager.

Background Papers (DoP&D)

There are no background papers (as defined by Section 100D(5) of the Local Government Act 1972) relating to this report.
