(Report of Interim Chief Executive)


Consideration was given to the appointment of a Programme Manager on a full-time 3 year fixed-term basis to co-ordinate the various town centre related projects, developing and managing a town centre wide programme and monitoring progress.


Due regard was given to the views of the Finance, Regeneration and Property Scrutiny Select Committee who supported the creation of a Tonbridge Town Centre Programme Board to oversee the wider work programme.  The financial and value for money considerations detailed in 1.4 of the report were noted.


On the grounds of mitigating risks associated with having sufficient resource to progress the wide range of work, it was proposed by Cllr Boughton and seconded by Cllr Coffin that a Programme Manager be appointed.




(1)            a Tonbridge Town Centre Programme Manager be appointed on a full-time 3 year fixed-term contract; and


(2)            the allocation of funds from the Regeneration of Tonbridge Reserve to meet the costs of the above appointment, be approved (as detailed in 1.4).
