Report of the Director of Law and Governance


Scrutiny Management

Councillor N Akhtar, Chair of the Scrutiny Co-ordination Committee, attended the meeting of Cabinet Member for Jobs, Regeneration and Climate Change on 13 May, 2024 for consideration of an item relating to “Progress House, Westwood Way Westwood Business Park Coventry - Lease Re- gear


Councillor Akhtar agreed that the decision was urgent and that call in should not apply. In accordance with the Constitution, this matter is reported to inform the Committee of the reason for urgency which is:-


“In order to meet the construction programme and complete the new development for the occupation by students before commencement of the academic year in September 2026, the legal agreement and commitment was required to be completed by the 20th May 2024. If this timescale is not achieved, then a delay of a further 12 months would be incurred, which would mean that the improved income for the Council is also delayed by a year. “
