EXCLUSION OF PRESS AND PUBLIC
The Chair shall propose that the press and public be excluded from the meeting during the discussions on the following items due to the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 14 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).
There is an acknowledged public
interest in openness in relation to the use of public resources and related
financial issues. It is also acknowledged that there are occasions, in order to
protect the financial and commercial interests that matters related to such
information need to be discussed without being publicised. The reports deal
specifically with financial and business matters and related discussions.
Publication of such commercially sensitive information could adversely affect
the interests of the bodies and the Councils and undermine the confidence of
other Growth Deal participants in sharing sensitive information for
consideration. This would be contrary to the wider public interest of securing
the best overall outcome.
FORMER NORTH WALES HOSPITAL, DENBIGH - OUTLINE BUSINESS CASE
Mathews (Land and Property Programme Manager) to present the report.
1. That the Board approve the
Outline Business Case for the Former North Wales Hospital project subject to
Welsh and UK Governments' approval of the assurance process, and Jones Bros
Civil Engineering UK Ltd addressing the matters set out in the report, as
described in Section 7, and recommend to the NWEAB that a Full Business Case is
prepared for the Board to consider.
2. To note that as Jones Bros
have been procured already by Denbighshire County Council as the developer for
the site, there is no main procurement that needs to be completed before the
FBC is approved. The Commercial Case sets out how Jones Bros will meet the
Ambition North Wales Procurement Principles themselves and through their use of
sub-contractors. The Funding Agreement to be developed will need to include
provisions to cover this arrangement.
3. That the Board authorise the
Portfolio Director in consultation with the Host Authority Section 151 Officer
and Monitoring Officer to agree draft terms in accordance with this report for
approval by the NWEAB as a basis for the final funding arrangements for the
project which will form the basis of the Grant Offer Letter which will be
agreed by the Board at the Full Business Case stage.
