Dear Mr Burton,

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 / Environmental Information Regulations
2004 Information request

 

We have now considered your information request as set out below. 

 

You asked:

 

Please will you provide details of progress in delivering each of the
projects approved for funding from the Neighbourhood Fund by Cabinet in
July 2019, including:

1.       which projects are (a) complete, (b) in progress and (c) not yet
begun;

2.       which completed or in progress projects are under or overspent
and by how much;

3.       details of any additional projects funded through the
Neighbourhood Fund, including their financial value; and

4.       when the approved project for refurbishing Bramcote Parade is
programmed to commence.

 

Please refer to the following tables below which summarises Council’s
response. A formal review report will likely be submitted to Cabinet in
September should you need further information. Contractor procurement for
the Bramcote Parade improvement had begun but was put on hold due to
Covid-19 restrictions so now commencement is planned for late July,
subject to Covid-19 guidance in place at the time.
