11/07/2024 - Reconnected Croydon Levelling Up Fund Programme Procurement Strategy ref: 2286    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

In 2022 the Council made a submission to Tranche 2 of the Government’s Levelling Up Fund (LUF) to support delivery of a programme of highways and public realm improvements in and around Croydon town centre. Subsequently the Government announced that the bid had been allocated £18.5m in funding under Tranche 3 of the LUF. Alongside the Government Grant, £5.6m in match funding has been identified, bringing the total programme budget up to £24.1m.

 

In order to deliver the Programme to tight deadlines (including the requirement to commit LUF expenditure by 31st March 2026), achieve best value and secure appropriate technical expertise, procurement of external contractors is required.

 

The report sets out the overall approach to procurement activity and specifically seeks approval for procurement of a contractor to design and build a portfolio of highway and public realm projects across Croydon town centre and its hinterland. It includes details of the analysis of routes to market undertaken and the work to date that has informed the recommended approach.

 

Further reports will be brought forward as required for other elements of the Reconnected Croydon Programme.

This report recommends the disposal of the freehold interest of 21 Broom Road, Shirley, CR0 8NG.  The objectives for the disposal were to secure maximum receipts, achieve offers on an unconditional basis with the lowest possible transactional risk and to target capital receipts with the preferred bidder as quickly as possible for the Council to reduce its outstanding debt.  SHW undertook an open market process.  A transparent and clear process was provided for parties to undertake their due diligence to ensure considered offers.  SHW received six offers.

 

Details of the offers received and the marketing report are included within the confidential Part B report, as this is exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended), as it relates to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and the public interest in withholding disclosure outweighs the public interest in disclosure

05/07/2024 - OUTCOME AND DECISION - PARKING CHARGE AMENDMENTS 2024 / 2025 ref: 2282    Recommendations Approved

 

The purpose of this decision report is to enable consideration of the objections received from members of the public following the statutory consultation process on the proposals to update the Emissions Based Parking Tariffs in the borough.

 

The Executive Mayor’s Business Plan sets the main policy drivers for the new parking policy to be fair, supportive, transparent and efficient and the proposed amendments to the parking charges helps to meet these aims. The new parking charges recognise that vehicles are increasingly more efficient, whilst not penalising the cost of the less efficient vehicles that may be more likely to be used by those that are less likely to be able to upgrade their vehicle.
