Minutes:

Mr William Cornall, Director of Regeneration and Place, explained to the Committee that the report proposed to roll over unspent capital funding to purchase additional temporary accommodation.

 

The Committee commented that it was important to progress with the purchase of temporary accommodation, as it recognised that Maidstone Borough Council did not currently have enough temporary accommodation to meet need.

 

RESOLVED: That:

 

1.  The underspent sum of £180,000 within the previously approved capital budget for Housing Investments be released for investing in further property for use as temporary accommodation for homeless households.

 

2.  Any further additional underspend within the previously approved capital budget for Housing Investments be released for investing in further property for use as temporary accommodation for homeless households.
