Wards affected: Finchampstead South;

Lead officer: Rhian Hayes

Notice of decision: 31/08/2021

Anticipated restriction: Part exempt  - view reasons

Explanation of anticipated restriction:
Yes - it is likely that part of the report will be considered at a private meeting of the Executive. This is because it is likely that the report will contain information relating to the business or financial affairs of individuals.
Due to potential changes in the construction and property market, primarily as a result of the pandemic, it is felt that a review of the cost assumptions in the business case would be prudent and deliver the necessary de-risking of the project if market fluctuations have arisen. This item has therefore been deferred from the September Executive
