Programme of Works to enhance Fire Safety in the Council’s Housing Stock

To provide Cabinet with an update on the process for developing a detailed programme of fire safety works, following Council’s agreement of a £10million increase to the Council’s 2017/2018 Capital Programme, in order to meet the cost of enhancing the fire safety measures in the Council’s housing stock.

Decision type: Non-Key

Decision status: For Determination

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 14/07/2017

Reason for urgency:
This report follows on from a decision taken at Full Council only on 10 July 2017 to increase the 2017/18 Capital Programme. It forms part of the Council’s priority response to enhancing fire safety measures in the Council’s housing stock. Undue and unnecessary delay to the process of developing a detailed programme of works would be caused if this report was deferred until the next scheduled meeting of Cabinet.
