Outline Business Case for Extra Care Housing PFI pdf icon PDF 127 KB

To consider whether to approve the re-submission of the Outline Business Case for Round 5 Extra Care Housing PFI.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report which sought approval for the re-submission of the Outline Business Case for Round 5, subject to approval from the respective Council’s Cabinet/Executive as regards affordability.

 

The Outline Business Case had been originally submitted in April 2009 and had been further refined since then to bring it in line with comments received from the Housing and Communities Agency.  The Outline Business Case proposed that 337 new Extra Care units were developed on four sites located in Sandbach, Poynton, Blacon and Ellesmere Port, of which a minimum of 200 would be for social rent.  The resubmission of the Outline Business Case would allow the Councils’ interest in Extra Care Housing Round 5 to proceed to the next stage. 

 

RESOLVED:

 

That the Outline Business Case for Extra Care Housing Round 5 be resubmitted, subject to approval from the respective Council’s Cabinet/Executive as regards affordability.
