To gain delegated approval to enter in to contract with the main construction contractor, once the procurement process has been concluded.


Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing / Director of Economy that provided an update on the progress of the Touchstones Capital Investment Project.


Resolved - That the recommendations as set out in the exempt report, be approved.


Reason for decision


In order to meet the Arts Council funding deadline and to continue to meet the terms of agreement, the project must remain on programme.
