Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Affects 2 or more wards;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 09/04/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Due to an oversight by officers, it was not realised that accepting this grant required this level of approval until after the deadline had passed. The reason the decision cannot be delayed is to allow the signing of the Grant Agreement in line with the timetable agreed with the funder; a delay would jeopardise the funding and delivery of the project.

Decision due: 21 Apr 2021 by Cabinet (Resources) Panel

Lead member: Cabinet Member for City Environment and Climate Change

Lead director: Ross Cook, Director of City Housing and Environment
