In June 2018 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills gave authority to commence a procurement to replace the modular teaching accommodation at Southwater Infant and Junior Schools to ensure the schools can continue to accommodate the demand for pupil places in the locality (decision reference ).
Following full design which included submission and receipt of planning permission, detailed costings have now been sought which exceed the budget available.
Following a detailed review of options, the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to approve an increase in budget, funded from received Section 106 contributions, to allow the project to progress.
The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills has:
(1) Approved an additional £800,000 from Section 106 funds to enable the replacement of the modular teaching accommodation at Southwater Infant School and Southwater Junior School.
(2) Authorised the commencement of a procurement for the supply and construction of the modular teaching accommodation for the schools to be available for use by September 2020 within the budget set out in the report.
(3) Delegated authority to award the contract for carrying out the works detailed in the report to the Director of Property and Assets
