Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Cabinet authorised the Executive Director of Growth and Regeneration in consultation with the Mayor (with appropriate legal, finance and procurement advice), to procure, enter into contract and constructed new homes of social rent and to be managed by the HRA.

Decision:

That the Executive Director of Growth and Regeneration in consultation with the Mayor (with appropriate legal, finance and procurement advice) approves entering into contract with Willmott Dixon Limited for the construction of 57 new council homes.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - The alternative is to sell the sites, but this is likely to result in a lower level of “genuinely affordable” homes being delivered.
Option 2 - The scheme enables the HRA to spend RTB receipts at risk of being returned.
Option 3 -The proposal is for a revenue generating scheme that will benefit the HRA Business Plan.
