This report has one appendix which contain information exempt within the meaning of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 and is not for publication. The appendix has therefore been circulated to Cabinet Members only.
Any discussions on the contents of an exempt appendix will require Cabinet to pass the proposed resolution identified at the end of the agenda to exclude members of the public and the press from the proceedings for that discussion.
The Leader stated that since the Cabinet report was published, he had become aware that the Parks Commission, who were doing some excellent work with the intention of reporting in the Autumn, had produced an interim report which should be ready to be considered at the June Cabinet meeting or later. Accordingly, he decided to postpone consideration of this report until Cabinet could consider the interim findings of the Parks Commission.
The Leader added that the Parks Commission’s early findings could impact on the procurement strategy. It was important that the residents could have the opportunity to influence both the future strategy for the Council’s parks and open spaces and future procurement processes.
AGREED UNANIMOUSLY BY CABINET:
That this report be withdrawn
