Members were updated with the progress on the Square Phase 2 in Beeston.
Lettings and leases had been agreed for units 2,3 and 6 all of which were expected to be trading by January 2022. This was a little later than expected due to tenants focussing on rebuilding their existing businesses following COVID-19 restrictions and shortages of key materials across the construction industry.
The Cross party project board had received a presentation of options for refreshing and re-modelling the Argos block that had become vacant. Preferred options would be developed to prepare for a planning application and pre tender costs.
Councillors noted the report and further verbal updates that were provided at the meeting.
RESOLVED to continue to delegate to the Deputy Chief Executive all key approvals, in consultation with the cross-party project board, and subject to the overall project cost remaining within the financial limits already set or subsequently changed by the Finance and Resources Committee and/or Full Council as appropriate.
