The report will update Members on the Council’s purchase of the affordable housing at Barton
The Head of Housing and Property submitted a report (previously circulated, now appended) which updated Members on the costs and progress in acquiring the affordable housing at Barton Park.
Cllr Seamons Board Member for Housing and Estate Regeneration presented the report.
The Director for City Regeneration and Housing explained that Oxfordshire County Council had asked the City Council to act as the guarantor of the cost of the infrastructure works set out in the s278 agreement relating to the project. While the Director held delegated authority to agree this, he thought it would be useful for the Board to be aware of this position.
The City Executive Board resolved to
NOTE the progress in acquiring the affordable housing at Barton Park.
Note that the infrastructure works set out in the Barton Park development (s278 agreement) would be guaranteed by Oxford City Council.
