Report of the Managing Director of Bridge House Estates (BHE)
The Committee considered a report of the Managing Director of BHE providing an update on key areas of activity and outlining upcoming activities. The Managing Director of BHE introduced the report, and the Committee discussed the updates provided.
Impact and Learning
The Managing Director of BHE advised that previous induction and training sessions in respect of both the main Board and the Grants Committee had been recorded and were available for Members, who were also encouraged to contact officers if they felt there was any further topics for training or Member development that would be beneficial.
In response to a question from a Member, the Managing Director of BHE advised that recruitment to vacancies within the CBT team had been done on a staggered basis as vacancies had arisen due to retirements, which in turn dictated the timing of recruitment exercises. Further recruitment would be reviewed following the anticipated approval of the Supplemental Royal Charter.
In response to a question from the Chair, the Managing Director of BHE advised that it was hoped to complete the trial of a new approach to learning visits in the next few weeks, following delays arising due to Covid-19, and that if successful it was hoped to undertake these visits on a wider basis following the summer recess.
The Chair then gave thanks to Lewisham Local for their feedback and partnership in the learning case study set out in the report.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
