Outdoor Education (Part I and Part II Report)

Decision on the potential sale of the Council’s outdoor education sites.

Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Total service withdrawal/ closure of amenity;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 24/08/2018

Reason for urgency:
When the November 2018 to February 2019 Cabinet Forward Plan was published on 29 October, due to a system error, it did not state that this item was part exempt (although it had previously advertised as such on the October 2018 to January 2019 workplan). Accordingly this was explained to the Chair of Overview & Scrutiny and he has given his agreement that this report can be considered at the meeting on 27 November as a part exempt item.

Anticipated restriction: Part exempt  - View reasons

Decision due: 11 Dec 2018 by Cabinet
