17/04/2018 - Bretons Manor House, Tudor barns, outbuildings and walled garden - Applications for Grant Funding

The Leader of the Council will be asked to approve an application for funding to support the regeneration of the Bretons Manor House, Tudor barn, outbuildings and walled garden. The application is for funding amounting to £4m to Heritage Lottery Funding (approximately £2m for ‘Heritage Grants’ and for £2m for ‘Heritage Enterprise Grants’) to assist with the proposed regeneration project for Bretons Manor House, Tudor barns, outbuildings and walled garden.

 

Decision Maker: Leader of the Council

Decision due date: Not before 26/04/2018

Notice of decision: 17/04/2018

Reason for urgency:
This matter is being added by way of general exception as the full 28 day period of notice is not being given. This is because a decision is needed to meet deadlines which if not met will mean that possible grant funding will be lost. This will not be in the best interests of the Council or residents who will benefit from this development. There is no Cabinet meeting until June 2018 and therefore a decision is being requested from the Leader of the Council.

Anticipated restriction: Open


17/04/2018 - Implementation of Phase 4 expansion programme - Redden Court Secondary school expansion - Decision to increase funding

Further to the Cabinet decision to implement the phase 4, school expansion programme in October 2016 and the subsequent decision by the Cabinet Lead Member allocating funding, the Leader of the Council will be asked to make a decision to increase the funding for the Redden Court School Expansion.

Decision Maker: Leader of the Council

Decision due date: Not before 26/04/2018

Lead officer: Pooneeta Mahadeo

Notice of decision: 17/04/2018

Reason for urgency:
This matter is being added under general exception as the decision is needed urgently without giving the full 28 day notice period. This is due to the fact that the Education, Skills and Funding Agency need to procure the works for the development. The ESFA confirmed on 9th April that the authority can now use Basic Need for this project as the additional accommodation requested is not beyond the area guidelines of what the school require for a 2FE expansion which has led to the requirement of etra funding. The matter needs to be dealt with urgently as there is not a Cabinet meeting until June and the works are essential to ensure provision for the new school year.

Anticipated restriction: Open
