PLANS to sell land and buildings owned by the Isle of Wight Council will go before the cabinet tonight (Tuesday).
Members are due to discuss the possible lease or sale of the former Ventnor Coastal Visitor Centre and adjacent land to Ventnor Town Council, which plans to use the building as a community hub and workplace for small businesses.
It is proposed the council treats the town council as a special purchaser for the property, estimated to be worth £300,000 to £400,000.
Other proposals on the agenda for the meeting include the sale of The Avenues, a former mental health day centre in Freshwater, to Freshwater Parish Council. Officers have recommended members accept the parish council's £32,000 offer for the building, which it plans to use as a parish office.
A decision is due to be made on the possible disposal of the former tip at Stag Lane, Newport, after controversial plans to build a biomass plant there were dropped. Wind turbine blade manufacturer Vestas has approached the council to be treated as a special purchaser for the site, which could be used to store blades providing the land can be decontaminated.
Last week, the council's overview and scrutiny committee came out against the proposal on environmental grounds.
Members are also recommended to conclude the sale of the former Sunnycrest Nursery, Newchurch, following last year's delegated decision to sell the site to the Caravan Club, which owns the adjacent caravan park, for £365,625.
