Report of the Managing Director.
The Board considered a report of the Manging Director presenting the Capital and Supplementary Plan for the Barbican for 2020/21.
Members were happy to approve the first three projects being put forward but requested more information on the fourth project regarding the redevelopment of the Barbican kitchens, restaurants and event space.
The Director of Operations & Buildings confirmed that the current systems used for the operation of the spaces were out of date and not fit for purpose including health and safety implications (noisy and smelly). The works would provide an opportunity to enhance the business model, user experience and future offer of the spaces. Members recommended expanding the description to ensure the issues and needs were clear.
A Member suggested that the report go to the Corporate Priorities Board for input prior to the Resource Allocation Sub Committee.
RESOLVED - That Members:-
· review and approve the proposed capital and supplementary revenue projects budgets for 2020/21 for submission to Finance Committee;
· authorise the Chamberlain, in consultation with the Chief Officer to revise these budgets to allow for any further implications arising from Corporate Projects, other reviews and changes to the Cyclical Works Programme;
· agree that minor amendments for 2019/20 and 2020/21 budgets arising during budget setting be delegated to the Chamberlain.
