Additional documents:


The Director of Corporate Services presented the company progress report, highlighting that the planning applications were currently going through the Council’s planning process and had been considered by the Design Review Panel. and advised that the applications had been to the DRP and we going through the planning process.  Subject to the outcome of that process there may be some changes to the business plan due to the change in number of units, which would in turn impact on the return and the money the company would need to borrow from the Council.  It was anticipated that due to the delays with the planning process, the transfer of land would not take place in this financial year and would therefore need to be carried forward.


The Head of Sustainable Communities and Company Director advised that officers would continue to work with colleagues across London on delivering best practice for housing companies.
