Please note that because of the current restrictions due to Covid-19
there will be disruption to the day-to-day service you will receive from
the Housing Operations Service.

 

We are confident that the contingency plans we have put into place will
allow us to continue to respond to enquiries but some changes have had to
be made to protect vulnerable clients and to maintain social distance in
order to keep the public, contractors and staff safe.  This will affect
the processing of grant and loan applications and other work areas, such
as housing enforcement.

limited access to post.

We shall return to normal service when conditions allow, but thank you for
your patience and understanding at this challenging time.

Dear Tom

 

I refer to the freedom of information request submitted to Bradford
Council on 3 September 2020.  Your request, and the Council’s response,
are both detailed below.

 

REQUEST

 

On behalf of DB3 Architecture we would like to congratulate you on having
been selected to put forward your proposals & bid to Government as part of
the £3.6bn investment into the Towns Fund.

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act, we would be grateful if you could
provide us with some details regarding this so as to ascertain if we can
be of help:-

 

1.      The name of the person/people who has/have been nominated to
develop this Towns business plan.

2.      An outline of your intentions regarding utilisation of awarded
grant money.

3.      If there is an opportunity for you to involve the skills &

COUNCIL’S RESPONSE

 

1.       Delivery staff have not yet been appointed but current leads are

will approve the content of our Town investment Plans, which will detail

agreed schedule of projects, it is not possible at this time to confirm
what professional support will be needed.
