Allocation of Community Infrastructure Levy Funds - Whittle GP Surgery Development
Decision Maker: Executive Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Councillor Alistair Bradley, Executive Member (Economic Development and Public Service Reform), presented the confidential report of the Director (Business Development and Growth) which seeks approval for the allocation of Strategic CIL monies to develop the proposed Whittle GP Surgery at 239 Preston Road, Clayton-Le-Woods.
1. To approve the allocation of community infrastructure levy monies (50% of the build cost) to the Whittle GP surgery development project.
2. To note the total cost of construction (including PCSA costs). More detailed costings will be available in the coming weeks and a request will be made to Full Council on 19 November to increase the current budget already included in the approved capital programme.
Reasons for Recommendation(s):
1. To allocate the CIL infrastructure fund in the way it is intended and ensure the methodology of how it is allocated is transparent.
2. To support the delivery of the Whittle GP Surgery development to allow the relocation of staff and patients from the current Whittle Surgery.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:
The full development be funded through public loan monies. This would require a borrowing schedule over a minimum of 25 years and would not make allowance for any maintenance costs for the life of the building, when calculated against the rent to be paid by the NHS. The development supports the intended use of CIL allocation.
