I was at the start of this morning's Newham executive board meeting to hear John Tunney's presentation of options for the sale of Bridge Road depot and redevelopment of Folkestone Road depot.

Options for Bridge Road include a new datacentre development. I'm to arrange a meeting of the potential developers with the CE and executive director of resources.

The next agenda item was my presentation (prepared by Ian Gibbs – thanks, Ian) of our preparations for electronic records management at Building 1000, which was well-received.

Yet another audio-conference, on preparations for Friday's Socitm PUG (Planning & Urgency Group) meeting followed, after which I headed home to work for the rest of the day.

It's my birthday, and I don't want the all too frequent traffic hold-ups to make me late for a planned meal with family at my favourite pub-restaurant!
