Gateway 3 - City Cluster Area - Activation and Engagement Programme

Report of the Director of the Built Environment


The Sub Committee considered a Gateway 3 report of the Director of the Built Environment regarding the Activation and Engagement Programme for implementation of the City Cluster Area Delivery Plan. The Sub Committee noted that S106 funding had been agreed to reach the next Gateway, with options for further progressing the project dependent on securing additional funding, ideally through external sponsorship.


RESOLVED – That the Projects Sub Committee:
