Who will run or even own Mill Hall in the future?

Who will run or even own Mill Hall in the future?

As you may know Rochford District Council has been holding confidential meetings with public stakeholders about progress with The Expression of Interest (EOI) which is a Decision by RDC as to who will run or even own Mill Hall in the future.

I did ask those people if they could tell me but they could not because it was confidential !!

After much lobbying RDC an Officer has finally provided a P&C presentation to us Councillors.

We cannot share this with the general public but further due diligence is ongoing by Council Officers and Cabinet Members and we are advised that The Cabinet will make a Decision in December.

For our part we are going to make sure that we, and other Parties on The Council, can ask questions at The Overview and Scrutiny Committee in December BEFORE The Cabinet meet to make a Decision several days later.
