Reasons for decision


Cabinet agreed to the purchase of 74 Chapel Lane in Uxbridge which would enable the Council to continue to provide a suitable and secure home for those in receipt of social care.


The Cabinet Member for Property and Infrastructure noted the financial benefit that would also arise from the Council directly providing it’s own service support at the premises to vulnerable residents.


Alternative options considered and rejected


None, as the property was due to be sold by the current provider and the Council needed to ensure continuity of service to its residents.

Whilst the Cabinet's decisions above are always made public, the officer report relating to this matter is not because it was considered in the private part of the meeting and contained information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the Authority holding that information) and the public interest in withholding the information outweighed the public interest in disclosing it in accordance with Section 100(A) and paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12 (A) to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).
