To consider a report of the Corporate Manager for Property, Leisure and Climate Change seeking approval to deliver a grant-aided project(s) to reduce the carbon emissions of our leisure facilities.
The Cabinet had before it a report of the Corporate Manager for Property, Leisure and Climate Change seeking approval to deliver a grant-aided project(s) to reduce the carbon emissions of our leisure facilities.
The Cabinet Member for the Environment and Climate Change outlined the contents of the report stating that the receipt of the grant funding was excellent news which would allow decarbonisation works to take place at the three leisure facilities. He outlined the timescales for the project and the tender process that had taken place which had been based on quality rather than on price. The project would support the work taking place with regard to climate change.
(1) That the Cabinet accepts the grant from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme and agrees to implement the works to reduce the Council’s carbon emissions.
(2) That the Cabinet agrees to approve and award the contract for the supply and installation of low energy efficient LED lighting to Contractor 1.
(3) That the Deputy Chief Executive (S151) and the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing and Property Services are given delegated authority to take all necessary actions to deliver the Salix funded projects as detailed in para 1.3, for any contract variations and approval of any necessary significant design changes.
(Proposed by Cllr C R Slade and seconded by Cllr B A Moore)
Reason for the decision – there is a need to deliver the three grant aided projects to reduce the carbon emissions of our facilities.
