18. ACTION TAKEN SINCE LAST MEETING
To note the following decisions taken by the Chief Executive, after the appropriate member consultation, since the last meeting. The Register of Decisions will be laid on the table half an hour before the meeting.
(i) Locality Offices – Budget Reduction 2005/06 – Afternoon Closures
In order to achieve the budget reduction of £24,000, authorise closure of Farnham Locality Office on Monday afternoons and closure of Haslemere and Cranleigh Locality Offices on Friday afternoons.
(ii) Housing Stock Transfer Programme 2005 – Re-submission of the Cost Generator Model to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM)
Authorise an update to the Housing Stock Transfer Programme Submission 2005 to re-submit the Cost Generator Model to the ODPM to modify the application made in January 2005 to join the Housing Transfer Programme. The update model reflects amendments to the work programme which will ensure that double glazing and fencing can be financed and provided in the first six months of the programme. This will result in a stronger offer to tenants and reflect their aspirations for security.
