The officer noted that response and the Part Two section of the report had been submitted to the committee members. The recommendation was to grant the deed of variation.


Questions for officers


2.    Councillor Shanks was informed that the properties were not being bought out-right by the authority. It was considered that there was a need for affordable housing in the city.
