Award of contract for construction of an All Weather Pitch at The Forest School, Horsham

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 Learning and Skills approved the allocation of capital funding from Section 106 contributions to undertake a project to provide an All Weather Pitch at The Forest School (Decision LS05(21/22) refers). The Cabinet Member also delegated authority to the then Director of Property and Assets to award the contract for the project.


The Assistant Director (Property and Assets) will be asked to approve the award of contract for the proposed project at The Forest School.
