The organisations that put in a bid to take over head leasehold interest for Feltham Assembly Hall have been advised that none of the submissions were successful.
The review process was conducted with a panel of five council officers and an independent third party. They applied the procedure in line with Community Right to Challenge principles which allow relevant groups; voluntary, neighbourhood and community groups, charities or parish councils to show interest in providing services which demonstrate value for money and social benefits.
The assessment criteria against which all offers were measured was set out in the Feltham Assembly Hall tender document, and bidders had to meet the overall requirement of being the most socially advantageous and economically sustainable offer against these criteria.
Cllr Hanif Khan, Cabinet Member for Transport and Corporate Property, Hounslow Council, said: “Following a stringent evaluation process, the unanimous decision of the panel was that none of the offers in relation to the proposed Head Lessee for operating Feltham Assembly Hall as a community facility was considered sufficient to enable the panel to make a recommendation to grant a head lease to any of the submitting parties.
“As a result, the panel has referred the matter back to the Corporate Property Team for further consideration and the contract will continue to be managed by Fusion Lifestyle on our behalf for the time being.
“We would like to thank all the bidders for their time and effort in submitting their offers.”
The future of Feltham Assembly Hall wil now be reviewed.
