Decision details

To allow a variation in the lease at Grange Walk Playing Field to allow Charlton Kings Parish Council to carry out alterations to the park without the consent of Cheltenham Borough Council

Decision Maker: Executive Director – Finance and Assets - Paul Jones

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Reasons for the decision:

The Parish Council are wanting to carry out various improvements to the Grange Walk playing field these include placing a path around the perimeter and placing more outdoor gym equipment in the park.  The current lease prohibits any alterations to the park. The Parish Council have sought our consent to  allow for alterations. All alterations will be maintained by them and if required at the end of the lease, the Borough can request that any additions/alterations are removed.

Alternative options considered:

By rejecting this request, we would not be allowing the Parish Council to improve the park and make it a more year round place to go.

Wards Affected: Charlton Kings;

Other reasons / organisations consulted

The Parks and Gardens team are content with their proposals.
