5. Request received 30 January 2020
The following questions are asked under the Freedom of Information Act:
1. In view of the restrictive covenant attached to the Police H.Q land, we wish to know if it is to be ‘honoured’ or are plans being made to circumnavigate it by means of an outright purchase from Grainger’s or by the use of an insurance vehicle.
2. We understand that the Martlesham Heath Neighbourhood Plan was accepted and included in the Suffolk Coastal Plan, but ‘post acceptance and inclusion’ SCDC’s Cabinet decided to include ‘at the eleventh hour’ details of the proposed sale of the Police HQ in the documents it presented to Mr Philip Lewis, the Government Planning Inspector; an action contrary to the will of the Parish Council and local residents, who had overwhelmingly endorsed the Martlesham Heath Neighbourhood Plan when it was tested in a referendum. We therefore ask: is it the intention of the PCC, backed by SCDC/ESC, to ignore the Martlesham Heath Neighbourhood Plan?
3. What stage has the proposed land sale reached and importantly how much tax payer’s money i.e. SCDC / SDC / ESC and the PCC collectively, has already been spent and is projected to be spent on furthering this sale?
