Proposed decision is to replace an existing lease agreement to allow Waste Management extended occupation by continuing to operate a Waste Transfer Station and Household Waste Recycling Centre in Sevenoaks. This new arrangement will remove existing lease break clauses and extend the current term from 2026 to 2030. Further negotiated terms have concluded whereby existing lease charges over the initial term will be reduced by £1.6m, these will continue for the duration of the lease creating further value of £800k. Additional operational space has also been secured.
This proposed decision enables the retention of existing essential environmental services which are for the wellbeing and benefit to the residents of Sevenoaks District.
As Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, I agree to enter into a new leasing arrangement for Waste Services to occupy Dunbrik Waste Transfer Station and House Waste Recycling Centre (Sevenoaks) to 2030.
