The report set out the proposed terms of the freehold disposal of public conveniences to Parish and Town Councils.  It was noted that West Malling Parish Council had indicated that it did not wish to proceed with the transfer but that this had yet to be formally confirmed.  It was also noted that Borough Green Parish Council had requested the transfer to them of two areas of public space and that this matter would be investigated and reported to a future meeting of the Advisory Board.

(1)             subject to the receipt of formal confirmation from West Malling Parish Council as to whether or not it wishes to proceed with the transfer, the public conveniences at Borough Green, East Malling and Larkfield, East Peckham and West Malling be transferred to the respective Parish Councils in line with the terms outlined in the report;


(2)             the request by Borough Green Parish Council regarding the transfer of land at Crowhill and Staleys Acre, Borough Green be investigated and a report submitted to a future meeting of the Advisory Board; and


(3)             options for the disposal/alternative use of any public convenience sites not transferred to Parish/Town Councils be investigated.
