Special meeting called to discuss Assembly Rooms sale

BOSTON Borough Council has called an extraordinary meeting to discuss the sale of the Assembly Rooms.

The matter has so far been closed to debate, after the authority’s cabinet decided it was ‘too urgent’ to be discussed by the full council just hours after the leading group had debated the matter in their monthly meeting.

Leading members of the council held the discussion in private session during their meeting in July, as the matter was deemed to be too commercially sensitive for the press and public to hear.

Details of the sale, which has been made subject to contracts, are still unknown.

However, several members of the council have now requested a special meeting under the council’s constitution and it has been granted.

The meeting will take place on September 24, following the next meeting of the full council.
