That Cabinet agreed the recommendations of the report as follows:


1.     Cabinet authorised additional capital funding of £2.5m to fund the work necessary to meet the Environment Agency’s new statutory requirement for Fire Prevention Plans at all recycling facilities.


2.     Cabinet noted that our application to the Environment Agency will be one of the first under this new statutory requirement and it may be that the Environment Agency will require more substantial works in order to issue the permit. If so, further funding will be requested at a later date.


3.     Cabinet delegated authority to the Executive Director, Regeneration, Economic Development and Environment to negotiate the final costs for the delivery of the additional fire prevention works as set out in recommendation 1 above and vary the contract with Wilmott Dixon to include these additional works.
