Pinkham Way move goes to Barnet Cabinet

Report to Barnet Cabinet 29 Nov., here.

"Cabinet approved the sale of the Council’s land at Pinkham Way in LB Haringey to the NLWA for £12.1 million as part of a collaborative joint venture to relocate the Depot and provide for a new waste handling facility. Contracts were exchanged in December 2009. The receipt is due in January 2011, subject to satisfaction of contractual preconditions and completion of the sale. 
"The programme to develop the site for waste and the relocated depot is complex and high risk but is being managed between the Council’s Commercial Directorate (governed by the Relocation Board) and NLWA Procurement team."
