Livestock Market site, Louth
We have marketed the Livestock Market site and evaluated the bids received with our independent consultants, Chase and Partners.
The Executive Board has made a formal recommendation to Council, which proposes that the site be sold for redevelopment.
McLagan Investments Limited C/O ASDA Stores Ltd put forward the highest bid for the site. The bid remains commercially confidential.
A report relating to the sale of the site will go to Council on July 23, 2014. Any decision to sell the site would be one to be made by Full Council, with all Councillors having the opportunity to vote.
We have an obligation to provide a Cattle Market facility in Louth. Should we decide to sell the existing Cattle Market site then options for a viable replacement facility will be considered
