Effective from: 14/12/2023


As a result of the marketing campaign a formal offer was received from the World Mission Agency - Winners Chapel International (charity No. 1134421).
The decision is to accept the offer and dispose of Kingsnorth Recreation Centre. This allows the rationalisation of the Council's portfolio by disposing of this asset which is surplus to the Council's operational requirements. The sale secures a market value and achieves best consideration in line with the S123 statutory requirements, providing a capital receipt of £600,000 as well as retaining a community use.
