Establishing a Local Housing Company

Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Expenditure > £250,000;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 31/05/2023

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The reason for the urgency is the items need to be considered at the July Cabinet committee Housing in advance of referral to full Council at its meeting in September. The reason for this is that the properties in Winnall which will be leased to the company are expected to be available for letting when handed to the Council in November. Therefore, delay in full council consideration of the company business plan risks delay in letting properties and financial loss to the Council.

Under Paragraph 12.3 of the Access to Information Procedure Rules, the Monitoring Officer has received in writing the agreement of the Chairperson of the Scrutiny Committee to this decision being taken.

NB the report itself was included in the Forward Plan published 31/05/23 to be considered at Cabinet Committee: Housing on 10 July, but it did not also specify consideration of exempt business in the form of exempt appendices.

Anticipated restriction: Part exempt  - View reasons

Decision due: 10 Jul 2023 by Cabinet Committee: Housing

Lead member: Cabinet Member for Housing
