The Council considered the report of the Director of Service Delivery providing Members with an update on the current position of an ongoing matter and seeking Members’ agreement of the next steps.


The report provided detailed background information regarding the matter and how the related licence was due to expire at the end of August 2022.  The Senior Specialist Legal outlined the action available to the Council following expiry of the licence.


A debate ensued and in response to questions raised Officers provided the Council with further information.


Councillor A S Fluker proposed that recommendation (ii) as set out in the report be amended to detail a weekly rate of £1,000 and that this be agreed by the Council.  This proposal was duly seconded and upon a vote being taken was agreed.


RESOLVED that if contractors have been confirmed to remove the vessel within 28 days of the expiry of the licence that the licence be extended for this period at a weekly rate of £1,000 per week.
