Decision details

Surrender of Amersham library lease (Decision taken)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Resources

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes


Surrender of Amersham library Lease to Chiltern District Council to enable Chiltern Pools development to proceed.


The Cabinet Member:


AGREED to the lease surrender subject to this being simultaneous with the grant of a licence by Chiltern District Council permitting the library facility to be accommodated within the King George V office building and with all associated costs being met by Chiltern District Council



This decision has been taken under the Council’s Special Urgency provisions for the following reasons:


"The Shadow Executive has approved the development plans to create the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre and the scheme involves the demolition of the library which is to be temporarily relocated into the King George V offices pending completion of the new Centre.  Chiltern District Council’s programme of works apparently permits the contractor access to commence the demolition enabling works on the 14th October  and the library is scheduled to re-open on Tuesday 15th October. Therefore the formal surrender of the County Council’s leasehold interest in the library site needs to be legally completed in advance of Monday the 14th."
