Special Council Meeting
Only item on the Agenda was the Tram Update Report and after a bit of an adjournment to consider various addendum's there was all-Party agreement on the report before us.
Labour Group addendum ultimately read:
1. To instruct the Chief Executive to seek absolute clarification on the new Scottish Government’s intention in relation to the release of the remainder of the £500million Government Grant and that such an update be received by Council prior to any further decisions on this project.
2. To instruct the Chief Executive to report on potential compensation arrangements for Princes Street and West End traders given the possible, additional closure of Princes Street and that such an update be received by Council prior to any further decisions on this project.
3. To instruct the Chief Executive to ensure the next Council report on the Tram project, scheduled for 30 June 2011, was in the public domain a full seven days prior to the Council meeting.
Full Council Meeting on the 30th June is now shaping up to be the critical moment for the project - no doubt about that.
