This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.
Reason for urgency:
Under provision 33.14 of the Access to Information Procedure Rules in the Council’s Constitution, the Council may apply a case of special urgency to the rule to publish notice of a decision 28 days in advance of that decision being taken with the agreement of the Chair of the relevant Policy and Scrutiny Committee. Cllr Angela Piddock, Chair of the Children & Adults, Public Health & Voluntary Sector Policy and Scrutiny Committee agreed to this decision being treated as a matter of special urgency on 11 August 2022. The decision could be taken immediately after this agreement was given.
Adherence to the normal access to information rules, and specifically the 28 day rule, are not practical in these circumstances since the current service provider gave notice on 1 August that they will be ceasing service provision from 26 August and the nature of the services provided to vulnerable people mean that there can be no gap in service provision.
