Decision Maker: Cabinet
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To consider the options for the land at Post Hill Tiverton.
Following the call-in of the decision with regard to land at Post Hill made by Cabinet on 3 December 2020.
The Scrutiny Committee at its meeting on 14 December had made the following recommendation:
‘That Cabinet reconsiders its decision on the delivery of Post Hill homes by a possible Teckal Company and that it instead substitutes it for a recommendation to Full Council’.
The Cabinet Member for Housing and Property Services stated that he was confused by the recommendation from the Scrutiny Committee as any decision with regard to the formation of a Teckal Company had not yet been considered. With regard to development at Post Hill, there was no project plan and that any design work had yet to be completed. He emphasised that he would be happy that any decision to be made on the formation of a Teckal Company would be a Council decision.
Consideration was given to:
· The views of the Scrutiny Committee with regard to the previous decision and whether that was predetermination of a decision with regard to the formation of a Teckal Company
· The delivery of affordable housing on the Post Hill site.
RESOLVED that following Cabinet consideration of the formation or not of a Teckal Company that the decision and relevant papers are taken to Full Council for consideration and deliberation.
(Proposed by Cllr R B Evans and seconded by Cllr R J Chesterton)
