Additions to the Capital Programme and Revenue Budget (Amendment)

15 January 2009

Motion

Members received a report seeking approval to amend the capital programme to increase the allocation for Part 1 claims on the A228 to £2 million and the addition of £2,096,112 funding from Communities and Local Government for the Great Lines City Park, subject to such funding being agreed by the Communities and Local Government.

In addition, in line with the decision of Cabinet on 6 January 2009, Members were requested, subject to the making of a Parking Order, to approve car parking fees and charges for the Black Lion Leisure Centre, as set out within Section 5 of the report, it being noted that such measures were being introduced to make it easier for users of the leisure centre to park and that the Director of Regeneration, Community and Culture had been granted delegated authority to introduce a parking fee refund system for leisure centre users.

The Portfolio Holder for Finance, Councillor Jarrett, supported by the Leader, Councillor Rodney Chambers, proposed the recommendations set out within the report, subject to an amendment to proposed recommendation 7.2 to change reference to 'Great Lines City Park' to 'Great Lines Heritage Park'.
