The Cabinet had before it a *report of the Director of Finance, Assets and Resources requesting agreement to award a contract to provide for the development of 6 affordable housing units at a site near Oakfields, Burlescombe.
The Cabinet Member for Housing outlined the contents of the report reminding the meeting that the detail of the scheme had been noted by the Cabinet on 4 January 2018, the funding from Homes England (formally the HCA) was time limited and that there was a need to award the contract and progress the project urgently.
Consideration was given to:
· The need for more affordable housing in the district
· The delay in the planning process
RESOLVED that the contract be awarded to 3 Rivers Developments Limited with a maximum budget of up to £850k.
(Proposed by the Chairman)
i) Cllr R L Stanley declared a personal interest as a Director of 3 Rivers Developments Limited ;
ii) *Report previously circulated, copy attached to minutes.
