(2) That Cabinet authorises the Chief Executive, the Strategic Director for Communities and other relevant officers to take any steps necessary or incidental to organising and holding the event.
(3) That Cabinet notes that a further report will be submitted in November 2011 that sets out, in detail, how Brighton & Hove City Council, and the city as a whole, will seek to ensure the significant opportunities arising from the Games are exploited fully for those that live, work and visit the city.
