  • Nottinghamshire County Council (16 006 916)

    Statement Upheld Land 09-Feb-2017

    Summary: The Council failed to secure the best possible price for land it disposed of. It also failed to give the finance and property committee all the information it needed to make an informed decision. But I cannot conclude that had these faults not occurred Mr B would have been the successful bidder. It has, however, caused him some uncertainty.
