Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee received a report of the Director of Community & Children’s Services regarding the Gresham Almshouses. Members discussed the report, noting a recent decision of the Housing Management & Almshouses Sub Committee granting approval to make budget provision for refurbishment works on the City of London Almshouses, and to begin Gateway and procurement processes with a view to the works being carried out in a two-year period.

 

Officers reported that it was intended for the Gresham Almshouses to undergo the same refurbishment, but that the estimated costs were not yet available. Members noted that some of the refurbishment works planned had already been carried out or were scheduled for the Gresham Almshouses owing to recent voids.

 

RESOLVED – That authority be delegated to the Town Clerk in consultation with the Chairman and Deputy Chairman to approve, in principal, the budget provision and commencement of Gateway and procurement processes for a refurbishment programme for the Gresham Almshouses; and that the report be noted.
