Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


(i)           to note the content of this report;

(ii)          to agree that a bid for the Tall Ships Race in 2022 is not viable and therefore agree that the development of a formal business case and allocation of associated resources be postponed;

(iii)         to instruct officers to continue to explore options for a future bid for the Tall Ships Race and/or an appropriate maritime event following wider consultation with Aberdeen Harbour and city/regional partners. Where appropriate, this would align to any future City of Culture bid; and

(iv)         that officers provide information to Councillor Flynn on whether there was any consultation undertaken with the Harbour Board prior to the decision taken at the meeting in March 2017.
