Skegness Town Council Takes Control of Key Assets

Skegness Town Council Takes Control of Key Assets

EAST Lindsey District Council and Skegness Town Council have both agreed to an asset transfer, meaning the Town Council will take ownership of a number of key assets in the town, including Tower Gardens.

Both Councils had been in discussions about the transfer over the past year, and yesterday (5 December) the transfer was formally agreed, following meetings of both Councils.

The transfer will give the Town Council full control over how the assets are used for the benefit of the local community. The assets will be handed over to the Town Council throughout 2019, with the first, including Tower Gardens, being transferred early in the New Year. More »

Prior to the transfer the District Council will undertake a number of works, including the demolition of Tower Gardens Pavilion, fitting of payment machine gate at Tower Gardens public toilets and any identified tree works.

Assets to be transferred include, amongst others, Scarborough Avenue Car Park, Coronation Walk, Tower Gardens Kiosks, parcels of land on Church Lane, Westway/ Roman Bank, Seacroft Square, Alma Avenue, Elder Close, Primrose Close, William Way, Vine Walk, Beresford Field and King George V Walk. .

The agreement will see the District Council take back the site of the former Sunshine Paddling Pool on the northern foreshore, which the Town Council has developed into a play park.

Skegness Town Mayor, Councillor Sid Dennis, added: "Taking control of local assets will give Skegness Town Council, and therefore the people of Skegness, more control over how these parts of the Town are managed. It was an opportunity that could not be missed, since it will help achieve the objectives which have been part of Skegness Town Council's Business Plan for over 4 years. All Councillors have worked together as one to achieve this and by working closely with East Lindsey District Council we have turned an ambition into a reality."

Portfolio Holder for Finance and Property, Councillor Richard Fry, said: "I'm very pleased that both Councils have agreed this asset transfer. This is the culmination of a yearlong piece of work by both the District and the Town Councils, and a positive move for Skegness. This process is all about transferring packages of assets to be managed locally by the communities concerned and I'm sure that Skegness Town Council will be able to utilise the assets for the benefit of the town." » Less
