In February 2012 the Working Group of the Council's Overview and Scrutiny Panel published its Report into the Cube.
The Report comprises three Volumes, Volume 1 being the body of the Report, Volume 2 being the transcripts of Interviews and Volume 3 being the other Appendices.
Volume 1 was published in two formats: the first being the Original Version with full name disclosure of interviewees; the second version being an Anonymised Version was having names taken out to protect confidentialities assured at the time of the interview.
The Anonymised Version of Volume 1 and Volume 3 were distributed to all Members in mid-February 2012 and the subject of a Briefing Seminar for Members was held in late February. Members were advised that Volume 2 was available for reading in the offices of CB Property but could not be taken away in order to protect confidences.
This Public Version of the Cube Report is a redacted version of the Anonymised Report. The principal adopted in preparing this Version is that all material remains intact and as originally drafted unless absolutely essential to be excised to protect from disclosure inappropriate personal and/or commercially confidential information. Unless necessary to maintain narrative flow and sense, there has been no alteration of text. Where alteration of text has been essential, that is indicated by a change of colour.
In preparing this version of the Cube Report the Council has taken legal advice from Freeth Cartwright, Solicitors, and its own internal Solicitor. But for the avoidance of doubt the Report is authored by the Working Group supported by the Head of CB Property.
