Southwater Infant and Junior Schools - Additional Funding Replacement Accommodation

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 ES03 (18/19).


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.
