    The company advising West Lancashire Borough Council on establishing a separate house building organisation have links to Lord Derby’s Estate, the same Estate standing to benefit from the sale of large landholdings if the council releases green belt land in the Borough under the controversial proposals for a new local plan.

    OWL Councillor Ian Davis has now written to the Borough Council’s Chief Executive over the matter, telling QLocal this morning: "Lord Derby’s Estate Director lists a Directorship at Savills on the social media site, LinkedIn.

    "Savills have been awarded a £250,000 contract to advise the Borough Council on setting up a house building arm to enable the council to build houses for profit, and Savills may well hold the two non-Executive Directorships, at least in the short term on the new Council Development Company.

    “A report is coming to cabinet this month and council in February seeking to establish this new council housing building arm," he added.

    "Once established this new Development company will be looking to purchase land in West Lancashire for house building.

    "Given the connection between Lord Derby’s Estates and Savills and the controversial proposals to build thousands of houses on land currently owned by Lord Derby, I have written to the council’s Chief Executive seeking assurances that Savills will not be appointed to the non-Executive Directorships.

    "Furthermore, I am seeking assurances as to the council’s longer term intentions and potential for conflict over its role as the planning authority and potential development by this new house building arm.”

    *The £250,000 contract awarded to Savills is listed at the Council’s Contract Register September 2018 Item 55 https://www.westlancs.gov.uk/media/5...ber-2018-2.pdf - the connection between Savills and Lord Derby’s Estate is detailed at https://www.linkedin.com/in/simon-waller-1279a5115/
