Asset Management, Culture & Housing and Policy & Resources Cabinet Members – Minutes – 6 August 2014

1              (1)  BaE TRAINING ACADEMY – HUMBERSIDE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTThe Director of Places submitted a report which sought approval for funding for the development of a British Aerospace Systems (BaE) national training academy at Humberside International Airport.

The report also sought authority for the council to enter into agreements to enable the council to deliver the development.

Officers had been working with BaE Systems, training provider LRTT and Humberside International Airport (HUY) to create a National Training Academy at Humberside International Airport. The Academy would create over 150 new jobs within three years and securing this opportunity was a major achievement for North Lincolnshire. It would also raise the profile of engineering as a career path in the area.

Details of the proposals were outlined within the report.

Although not the decision maker Cllr Mrs Redfern had declared her status as a council appointed Board Member of Humberside International Airport pursuant to Regulation 13 2 (d) of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012. 

Resolved – (a)  That the investment and development proposals outlined in the report be approved; (b) that the Director of Places be authorised to progress the completion of all the necessary agreements as listed in paragraph 2.5 of the report subject to agreement of satisfactory terms; (c) that the capital programme be updated to reflect these projects and their funding, and (d) that the Director of Policy and Resources be authorised to borrow sufficient funds necessary for the Property Transaction Account mechanism to enable the project to go forward.
