Note exercise of SO 58 in relation to a building dispute

The Cabinet Member for PRED is asked to note the following -

 

An urgent PRED decision was taken on 12 December 2018, with regard to a

building dispute. This decision was taken through the Chief Executive

agreeing to exercise his powers in accordance and compliance with

Standing Order 58 of the Council's procedure rules .

The matter concerned a requirement to settle a claim in mediation to avoid

the risk of unnecessary and protracted litigation with associated costs.

It was anticipated that the final payment figure would be beyond the

delegated authority to the City Solicitor to settle a claim - which at the time was £50,000.

A differential payment of £75,000 was required which necessitated the

exercise of Standing Order 58.
