Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To approve the disposal of the council owned land formerly occupied by Colwall CE Primary School subject to the agreement from the Secretary of State. Colwall CE primary school was relocated into a new build school on a new site in January 2018 due to severe water ingress problems in the building. No use has been made of the buildings since this date and therefore they are no longer required as an educational establishment.




a) The council owned land formerly occupied by Colwall CE Primary School, as identified edged in blue on the plan at appendix 1, be approved for disposal; and


 b) The service director education, skills and learning be authorised to take all operational decisions necessary to implement the disposal subject to Secretary of State consent being secured

Alternative options considered:

The site is retained. The opportunity to realise a capital receipt would be lost and costs would be incurred to maintain the site or demolish the building to reduce council liability. This is not recommended.
