Decision on Ageas Bowl’s council representation deferred

First published in News

A DECISION on which councillors will sit on the board at the home of Hampshire cricket was last night deferred to a later date.

Eastleigh Borough Council has committed £30m to a project to build a luxury hotel at the Ageas Bowl in West End, along with buying the lease of the stadium for £6.5m.

As previously reported, members of the borough council will now sit on the company’s board to act as a “critical friend” and make sure the council’s “interests are safeguarded”.

The Daily Echo revealed last week that the company behind the home of Hampshire cricket lost more than £3m in 2011.

A total of three appointments to the board will be made from the council – an Ageas Bowl wider site representative, a hotel development representative and a community trust representative.

The representatives will be able to attend board meetings and make representations – but will not be entitled to vote.

Appointments to the board roles will be made at a full council meeting on October 18.
