                        Notice of Motion

                        To be moved by Councillor Adam Hug and seconded by Councillor Liza Begum: 

                         

                        This Council notes that the cost of the Marble Arch Mound has risen to over £6 million and that the delivery of the Mound project has brought international embarrassment to the City of Westminster. 

                         

                        This Council also notes that the Marble Arch Mound is part of a wider £150m West End District project that contains significant spending including the Strand Aldwych and piazzas at Oxford Circus. 

                         

                        This Council believes that both Council Members and Westminster residents were misled by the political leadership of the Council about the progress of the Marble Arch Mound project. This Council believes that the failure of the Council’s project management and the gulf between rhetoric and reality is indicative of a Conservative administration that has been in power for far too long. 

                         

                        This Council further believes that the inability to charge the planned ticket fees and the failure to secure much of the projected sponsorship leaves Westminster taxpayers picking up the £6 million bill for the Mound. 

                         

                        This Council resolves to appoint an independent reviewer to advise and oversee the investigation into the Council’s processes, decision making and organisational culture which resulted in this debacle. 

                         

                        The Council resolves not to proceed with further major capital investments within the West End District project until all reviews of Council decision making relating to the Marble Arch Mound and associated issues are completed and have received full scrutiny by Members, and until proper public consultations on future projects have taken place with local residents. 

                         

                        This Council finally resolves to take steps to dismantle and remove the Marble Arch Mound as soon as is practicable.
