Consultation process

The site has been discussed at the overarching governance structure overseeing the CBC/CBH affordable homes programme, which includes the Strategic Housing Delivery Group (SHDG) and Cabinet Member Housing Working Group (CMHWG). These forums include Senior officers from CBC/CBH and the Cabinet Member for Housing.  It is collectively agreed that the key priority is to expedite progress on this site.

Paul Jones, CBC Executive Director Finance and Assets, is in support of proceeding with the appointment of Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Project Manager, for RIBA Stages 0 – 7 under the NHS Framework and for this to be concluded swiftly, by mid-July, ahead of the expiry date of the NHS Framework (31st July 2023). 

Regular reporting will continue via the current governance arrangements for new supply including the joint SHDG, CMHWG, Cabinet/Council as required and discussions between CBC/CBH officers.
