To update Members about commercial leases and
annual encroachments around the
lake and the current position in relation to debt recovery actions.
The Solicitor to the Council presented a report which provided Members with an update regarding commercial leases and annual encroachments around the Lake and the current position in relation to debt recovery actions. She explained that work continued on the resolution of longstanding debts, some of which required title investigations, which would involve the completion of a survey. In addition, external advice had been sought to assist the Council in deciding how best to pursue matters. The Solicitor to the Council concluded by informing Members that Lambert Smith Hampton would be sending out a letter to those with residential encroachments to offer longer term agreements, as previously approved by the Committee.
Members expressed their thanks to the Legal Team for their work in achieving the continued reduction in outstanding debts. In addition it was suggested that there may be merit in communicating, via the website and social media, the work involved in the management of the Lake and how revenue generated is spent.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
Note – Following this discussion, Members voted to move back into Part I.
