Agenda item

Future High Street Fund project - Revised business case


The Executive Member for Economy and Jobs proposed the recommendation with the deletion of recommendation (3) which was to revoke the requirement to report back to Executive on a monthly basis and to return to reporting by exception. This was seconded by the Executive Member for Corporate Services.


The Executive Member for Climate Change, Flooding and Coastal Protection asked for clarification on whether the market hall business case being discussed, and cinema design submitted to planning committee were two separate decisions, and that voting for one did not predetermine Planning Members when the planning application for the cinema was considered.


The Managing Director responded that the business case and the planning application were considered two different decisions and members would not be predetermination as they were voting on the business case rather than the design which was a separate planning matter.


Members went to the vote and it was carried to:-




(1)  The revised project scope and business case as set out in Appendices 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of this report for submission as a Proposal Adjustment Request to the Department For Levelling Up, Homes and Communities be approved; and


(2)  The options and timeline for considering the future use of the Alexandra Cinema building set out in paragraph 3.9 of this report be noted.
