Scrutiny Considerations


The Head of Finance introduced the report.


The Head of Finance said the following in response to Members’ questions:


      i.          Justification of why funds were not spent were listed in the report as it goes through each item.

      ii.          Had discussions with the University of Cambridge regarding the Mill Lane redevelopment proposal. Officers were discussing how this may be incorporated with their wider scheme. This had not progressed at this moment. Would continue to work with the University to see when they wish to proceed, as officers believe they would in the future.
