Condition on University Land Sale Agreement
From Athol Stephens’ report:
One of the conditions of the sale of land to the University is that the vendor (the Council) resolve (by full meeting of Council) by 30 June 2009 to proceed with the construction of the proposed multi-purpose stadium. While the Council has passed many separate resolutions, each relating to a particular aspect of the approval process of the stadium, there has not been an “umbrella” resolution for the stadium as a whole.
A resolution along those lines would give effect to Condition 5C of the University Land Sale and Purchase Agreement.
That the Council proceed with the construction of a multi-purpose stadium in the Awatea Street precinct, in accordance with all previous resolutions on the proposed stadium.
[excerpt] For the sake of technical accuracy in complying with the special conditions of the Sale and Purchase Agreement it has been recommended by Council solicitors that a specific resolution to proceed with the construction of the proposed multi-purpose stadium be passed. To date, no such “umbrella”-type of resolution has been passed. It is recommended that this be done at this Council meeting.
Translation… The council’s land purchase agreement with university can’t be brought into effect without this formal resolution.
