Decision details

Crewe Town Centre Sustainable Heat Network

Decision Maker: Finance Sub-Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee considered a report which sought authority to utilise external funding from the Future High Streets Fund and the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme for the delivery of the sustainable heat network in Crewe town centre.


Members felt that it would be helpful to have some form of oversight of how decisions were made on the funding of such projects. The Director of Finance and Customer Services undertook to consider the matter and report back.




That the Sub-Committee


1.    approves the inclusion of the Crewe Town Centre Civic Heat Network capital project, with a total budget of £2.727m in the main capital programme; and


2.    approves the alignment of the Capital Project for the Crewe Town Centre Civic Heat Network with the responsibilities of the Economy and Growth Committee.


Note: Councillor S Gardiner, as the Vice-Chair of the Strategic Planning Board, felt that he should not be present or take part in any discussion or voting on this matter on the basis that the Strategic Planning Board may at some future date be asked to consider a planning application which benefited materially from the project. He left the meeting before the matter was considered and was invited to return when the matter had been concluded.
