Issue details

Proposed Sale of Mansfield Street Garage, off Foss Islands Road, York

Purpose of report: The above property is a former garage, originally acquired for a road improvement scheme which did not proceed. It is about 200 sq m floor area, and has been let within the Commercial Portfolio since transferring from the County Council to City of York in 1996. It is now vacant. On remarketing, interest was expressed in purchasing the building, and this has been considered due to the need to find capital receipts, because the building may require substantial repair works in the future, and because the offers to purchase are potentially more financially advantageous compared to re-letting.

Members are asked to: Decide whether to accept any bid to sell the property as opposed to a re-letting.
