Decision:

RESOLVED:  That

 

(1)          the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) Business Plan update 2020, which would set the framework for the draft HRA Budget 2021-22 & Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) 2022-23 to 2023-24 and Capital Programme, due to be submitted to Cabinet on 3 December 2020, be approved;

 

(2)          the work being conducted on alternative delivery models, the costs and procurement route of which would be the subject of a future report to Cabinet and for which the HRA Business Plan would be updated, be noted.
