In July 2020 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills approved the siting of additional accommodation for QEII School on some of the existing playing field at The Forest School (Decision reference ES02(20/21)). In order to mitigate the impact of the loss of the playing field an All Weather Pitch will be constructed at The Forest School.
The All-Weather pitch will enable pupils to undertake outside sport activities all year round whilst also providing the school the ability to generate additional income through letting.
As part of a separate key decision process the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to approve the allocation of capital funding from Section 106 contributions to undertake a project to provide an All Weather Pitch at The Forest School. The Cabinet Member will also be asked to delegate authority to the Director of property and Assets to award the contract for the project.
Subject to this delegation of authority from the Cabinet Member, the Director of Property and Assets will then be asked to approve the award of contract for the proposed project at The Forest School.
