The Committee noted a correction to the report of officers.  Option 4 on page 46 should have referred to option 5.


RESOLVED that the Committee:


1.     Notes the progress of the Upper and Lower Fosters Scheme to date


2.     Approves the balance of Capital budget as required to: (1) progress the Upper and Lower Fosters scheme to RIBA stage 3, (2) to discharge the costs associated with the submission of the planning application and (3) the securing of an acceptable permission for that scheme and the preparation of an Outline Business Case for subsequent approval by the Committee.


3.     Approves the making of a Compulsory Purchase Order (“CPO”) under section 17 of the Housing Act 1985 and the Acquisition of Land Act 198, in respect of acquiring such pram sheds as are required to enable the development. The making of a CPO would be an option of last resort in the event that on-going negotiations and efforts to secure vacant possession proved unsuccessful.


4.     Delegates authority to the Deputy Chief Executive to instigate any required advertising and consultation procedures including for the possible appropriation of the land to include the consideration in consultation with the Chairman of the Committee of any representations received resultant on any advertising/consultation as may be required to comply with any statutory requirements and to authorise such applications for any statutory consents for the development of the Scheme, if required, to proceed with the formal appropriation and development of the land.
