Anyone scouring the pages of the local paper this morning might see the advert fr the disposal of the Ventnor Botanic Garden.
Following the delegated decision made last week by Cllr Barry Abraham, cabinet member for Fire, Culture and Residents Services, to dispose of the Ventnor Botanic Garden, the advert, placed in the official notices section of the paper, invites ‘expressions of interest’ in relation to the disposal of the 29 acre site.
Tourist, scientific and environmental potential are highlighted as selling points with closing date for applications 12,pm, 11 November 2011.
Those concerned that the disposal may lead to public access disappearing one of the conditions relating to the Garden’s future is that reasonable levels of public access are maintained.
That is, unless the consent of BIG (Big Lottery Fund), give consent to change the conditions.
Anyone interested should get in touch with Astrid Davies on firstname.lastname@example.org
There you go! Another free advert for the council.
