The Cabinet Member, in consultation with the Leader of the Council,
1. Authorised the Council to enter into an Agreement for Lease and Lease on the agreed Heads of Terms with Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT).
2. Authorised the Council to enter into a Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA) to the value of £116,203.19 and an Early Works Agreement (EWA) to the value of £154,471.08 with RG Carter (Cambridge) Ltdto respectively undertake design and enabling works in advance of the main construction works.
3. Authorised the Council to enter into any other legal documentation on behalf of the council in relation to this matter, including a design and build contract for the main construction works subject to a full value for money report and Cabinet Member Decision Notice.
There is an exempt annex which is NOT FOR PUBLICATION in accordance with paragraph (s) 3 of Schedule 12A of Part 1 of the Local Government Act 1972 in that it contains information relating to the financial or business affairs of the Council namely the details of the tender prices submitted by the unsuccessful contractors. The public interest test has been applied to the information contained within the exempt annex and it is considered that the need to retain the information as exempt outweighs the public interest in disclosing it as to do so would compromise the Council’s position when procuring similar works.
Agreeing the recommendations will enable formal contractual arrangements to be confirmed to commence the development of the design and early works and, ultimately, the main refurbishment work. This in turn will enable the Council to fulfil its intention to let the space at the Town Hall within the timeframes described.
This will secure additional revenue for the council in support of its medium term financial plans and support its move the new council offices at Sand Martin House.
