That the progression of the technical design works by Ask Real Estate and Patrizia UK at an estimated cost of the amount set out in the report be approved.

To reaffirm the commitment to invest in the local economy to provide sustainable opportunities for employment, innovation and growth across the borough.






To maintain momentum on the scheme, signal confidence in the local economy which is important as part of the delivery of the Economic Development Strategy.
