Hye House Farm, Crowhurst - Disposal of Freehold

Hye House Farm is currently occupied by way of a farm tenancy which is due to expire in September 2023. We are seeking Lead Member approval to formally declare the site to be surplus, and to approve the appointment of an appropriate marketing agent to seek to dispose of the land which will be in separate lots to maximise value. We then ask that the Chief Operating Officer be granted authority to agree detailed terms with the preferred purchaser and if they don’t complete the purchase, to move the next prospective purchaser(s) if appropriate.
