To settle, if appropriate following mediation, the litigation between the Council, Stonebridge Community Trust (HPCC) Ltd and others.

Decision type: Key

Decision status: For Determination

Notice of proposed decision first published: 10/07/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The hearing in respect of the litigation will commence on 20 July 2020. This was uncertain until the conclusion of a hearing on 6 July 2020. No date for the mediation, which is intended to take place prior to the hearing commencing, has yet been fixed. The date of the hearing has been fixed by the Court and the mediation process requires that the Chief Executive be in a position to reach a binding agreement with the other parties to the litigation, hence the need for the usual period of notice in relation to the Forward Plan along with call-in to be waived.

Anticipated restriction: Fully exempt  - View reasons

Decision due: Not before 10 Jul 2020 by Chief Executive
