Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To obtain approval of the procurement route, new delivery proposals and processes and to put in place appropriate delegation to approve the spend and resources required in connection with the delivery of the Section 106 schemes identified.

 

Decision:

That:

a)    Cabinet approves the procurement route and implementation of the new delivery proposals and processes and expenditure of up to £9.3m of Section 106 monies, including resources required, to deliver Section 106 schemes;

b)    Cabinet delegates to the Section 151 Officer to take all operational decisions relating to the above recommendations following consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance, Corporate Service and Planning, the Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport and the Cabinet Member for Children’s and Family Services.

 

Alternative options considered:

1.             Not approve the procurement route and implementation of the new delivery proposals and processes and expenditure of up to £9.3m of Section 106 monies, including resources required, to deliver Section 106 schemes.  This is not recommended.  As of June 2020 there was £7.6m of unspent Section 106 agreement contribution available to mitigate the impact of building developments on residents affected, this figure increased to £9.3m in July 2021.  There is also unspent, received monies of £122k which exceeded the repayment date for the Section 106 agreement.  There is now an urgency to deliver schemes for communities. 

 

Reason Key: Expenditure;
