BOROUGH council chiefs have welcomed a £2m windfall from selling off land.
The council’s resources committee heard that 16 out of 18 identified plots of land had been successfully put up for auction.
Council leader, Cllr Justin Madders (Lab, Ledsham) said: “That’s a very good return at this stage of the economic cycle.
“I presume that money will come on stream (into their accounts) when various legal acts have been executed so we can’t yet say how much that means in increased revenue and investments.”
A borough council spokeswoman said: “The plots involved are industrial sites that have been put up for sale as part of our property investment strategy.”
Full list of sold sites is:
Plots A, B and C by M53 Ford in Poole Hall Road, Ellesmere Port.
Plots 1 and 28 on Rossmore Trading Estate, Ellesmere Port.
Plots A&M, B, G, H, I, J and K on Clayhill Industrial Estate, Neston.
Restaurant site, Whitby Road, land at Myrtle View, and former toilets in Ledsham Road, Ellesmere Port.
And Liverpool Road, Neston.
And the sites not yet sold are:
Plots L1/L2 on Clayhill Industrial Estate, Neston; and land at Portside, Ellesmere Port.
