Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To continue with the transaction as approved by Delegated Decision (DD-025-19-KA) even though there are two fewer units of affordable housing than was originally agreed.

Reasons for the decision:

Cabinet under the previous administration, agreed that it would fund the scheme by way of commuted sum receipts to the value of £140,000. The scheme is for 100% social housing.

The developer is East Midlands Housing (EMH) group and the site is Chesterfield Road, Long Duckmanton.

As part of the planning process, 2 units had to be removed form the proposal. The decision is to proceed even though the number of units has decreased by two and that the formal agreement has not yet been signed.

Alternative options considered:

The commuted sums have been received by the Council pursuant to section 106 agreements. There is however a time limit on the use of these monies.

There are no alternative affordable housing schemes for the use of the money therefore if the Long Duckmanton scheme does not proceed it would result in the repayment of the commuted receipts to the developer with interest. This is not considered a feasible option.
