Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Council Housebuilding, Placemaking, and Development considered the report which sought approval to appoint the recommended contractor to complete a new build development of 23 new Council homes comprising 14 x one-bed two-person flats, 7 x two-bed four-person flats, 1 x two-bed three-person wheelchair flat, 1 x two-bed four-person wheelchair flat on Council land at Partridge Way edged red on the Development Plan attached at Appendix 1 being the ‘Partridge Way development site’. All 23 new council homes would be let at London Affordable Rents, pending Cabinet approval of the Provisional MTFS Budget on the 6th December 2022.

 

The report also sought approval of the appropriation of the land edged red on the Development Plan at Appendix 1 from housing for planning purposes to facilitate the development process which would also allow the Council to utilise its powers to override any third party interests and rights (subject to engagement with any potential claimants) and then to appropriate the land back to housing following practical completion of the development.

 

It was highlighted that all references to the Cabinet Member in the report should state the Cabinet Member for Council Housebuilding, Placemaking, and Development and that all references to the Director should state the Director of Placemaking and Housing.

 

It was noted that the Cabinet had approved the Provisional MTFS Budget on 6 December 2022.
