Issue details

Proposal to Lease Winterscale House, Winterscale Street, York

Purpose of Report: The report sets out a proposal by which the council would lease in a commercial property known as Winterscale House from a private landlord. The accommodation will be utilised to provide space for York Learning who currently occupy Rougier House, Rougier Street, York, which is also currently rented from a private commercial landlord. Under the proposal York Learning will be de-canting from Rougier House and the council surrendering its lease it has on that property. The report sets out the revenue savings associated with the proposed relocation.

The Executive member will be asked to approve the principle of the council taking a lease of Winterscale House for a term of 10 years and surrendering the lease it has in place at Rougier House.

The Council aims to give the same 28 days notice of non-key decisions, as it does for key decisions, but in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible. In this case, it has not been possible as the commercial lease offer is time critical and needs to be secured.
