Procurement and Award of Contract for replacement of the All Weather Pitch at Tanbridge House School, Horsham

The existing sand filled artificial all weather pitch (AWP] at Tanbridge House school has reached the end of its life. The pitch was installed in 1994 and is now 27 years old, these facilities have an average life expectancy of 15 years. A feasibility study and an independent condition survey have concluded that the pitch has reached the end of its life.


In July 2021 the Cabinet Member for Learning and Skills approved the allocation of S106 funding to enable the replacement of the AWP (decision LS04 (21/22) refers).  Since that decision the costs for this scheme have risen and it is proposed that further Section 106 funds are allocated to enable the project to proceed.


The Assistant Director (Property and Assets) will be asked to agree the additional S106 funding allocation and approve the procurement and award of contract for the replacement of the All Weather Pitch at Tanbridge House school.
