That the decision to service notice on JCUK be reverted and a new service level agreement for the organisation to remain within its current position at the Beecroft Museum, be approved.

 

Reasons for decision:

 

To revert the decision to service notice on JCUK and agree a new service level agreement for the organisation to remain within its current position at the Beecroft Museum.
