Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Expenditure > £500,000;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 18/02/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Speiclay Urgency procedure is required. This is the third in a series of decisions relating to the allocation of resources to support the Council’s effort to manage the continuing challenges due to the pandemic. This decision like the prior two decisions need to be taken on an urgent basis. The report sets out the proposals for expenditure to the period ending 31 March 2021. The management of the Council’s response to the pandemic continues in the background with some of the expenditure detailed in the report already having been incurred and the remaining expenditure about to be incurred. The reasons for taking this decision under the urgency procedure is to enable the Council to continue with the efforts to tackle the growing infection rates in the Borough. Any delay to this decision being implemented, likely to be caused by the notice and call in process would seriously prejudice the Council’s and the public interests.
