To consider a report seeking authority to award a construction contract for the expansion of the Dingle Primary School.
The committee received the report which sought authority to progress the proposed expansion of the Dingle Primary School into the final stages of design and construction.
It was noted that the latest cost estimate was from July 2022 and there was a query as to whether this will have changed. A further query was raised as to whether the £1m outlined in section 8.2.3 was additional to the latest cost estimate of £1.217m or in lieu of Section 106 contributions. Officers undertook to provide a written response to address these queries, confirming the current cost estimate and a breakdown.
RESOLVED (by majority):
That the Children and Families Committee delegate authority to the Executive Director of Children’s Services to procure and award a construction contract for the expansion of The Dingle primary school to 2FE, inclusive of preconstruction services and any other agreements associated with or ancillary to the contract.
