The report sought approval for the release of the sum of £378,000 from the unallocated capital budget for the Cecil Norris House Development to meet affordable housing needs.
The report also confirmed the final scheme budget for Albion Street and sought approval for the the release of the sum of £2.8 million from the capital budget to meet affordable housing needs.
