Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Brief Description

The decision will see commissioning officers enter into direct discussion with Preferred Homes Ltd around Leeds City Council (LCC) holding 100% nomination rights to all 63 apartments that will make up a newly proposed Extra Care Scheme to be developed in the Hunslet and Riverside Ward.


The outcome of this will be a nominations agreement issued by Leeds City Council and signed by both Leeds City Council and Preferred Homes Ltd.

Impact On Wards



The extra care scheme itself will be based in the Hunslet & Riverside Ward.


Financial and procurement implications

There are no direct financial implications of putting in place the nominations agreement, however there will be indirect financial implications through the future purchase of planned care and support from the care partner identified to cover the scheme. As this is an independently developed scheme, that care partner will be identified and established by Preferred Homes Ltd. The incurred care and support expenditure is expenditure that would otherwise have taken place as home care within the community.

Partnership working

Leeds City Council only.



The Director of Adults and Health has approved the request for commissioning officers to complete all necessary work to establish a 100% nominations agreement to all 63 apartments at the Preferred Homes Ltd extra care scheme in development in the Riverside and Hunslet Ward in Leeds. This nominations agreement would be with the landlord Preferred Homes Ltd.


In entering into a nominations agreement with Preferred Homes Ltd the Director of Adults and Health has noted and approved the ensuing work of establishing a contract with the onsite care provider, currently expected to be Westward Care, for the delivery of extra care services. Entering such contract will be completed using the provision under Regulation 32 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 - the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a notice.


The Director of Adults and Health has noted that Commissioning officers on behalf of Adults and Health Integrated Commissioning and colleagues in the General Property Team, Legal Services will be responsible for completing all of the actions covered within this report.
