To provide additional short-term resource to Council’s property team to complete a range of work on the Council’s estate, including developing and implementing plans that will reduce the amount of energy required to run the estate, at a time of rising energy costs, and in support of the Council’s carbon reduction ambitions.

The decision is made in consultation with Cllr Michael Talbot, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Public Space, and Cllr. Carlo Guglielmi, Portfolio Holder for Corporate Finance and Governance.


To allocate £60,000 from the Climate Action Fund, related to building repairs to recruit an additional short term building surveyor resource.
