We the undersigned call on the council to save the Southlands Centre. It is an integral business centre and vital community resource in the heart of East Middlesbrough.

An earlier decision to dispose of the Southlands Centre by Middlesbrough Council, failed to adhere to the council’s own asset disposal policy. This decision was challenged via Middlesbrough Council’s own scrutiny process.

The scrutiny committee was told by the Section 151 Officer that the asset disposal policy had been adhered to however, the internal auditors disagreed with that assertion.

We the undersigned believe you have failed to adhere to the asset disposal policy for a second time. In making the latest decision we believe that you have also failed to apply the principles of openness and transparency.
