Decision type: Non-key

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 07/12/2015

Decision due: 13 Jan 2016 by Executive Councillor for Housing

Lead member: Executive Councillor for Housing

Lead director: Director of Business Transformation

Department: Finance

Contact: Catherine Buckle, Strategy Officer Email: catherine.buckle@cambridge.gov.uk;catherine.buckle@scambs.gov.uk.

Additional Information: Requested for pre-scrutiny by Councillors Avery and Moore.

Background Information: The County Council wants to move their tenant in situ at 12 Mortlock Ave to a service contract. This can't be done under the current arrangement with the City. They would therefore like to buy the property. In return the City Council buys a vacant, 3-bedroom property requiring minimum work ready to let to a family from the waiting list.
