Decision details

Updated CYPD Capital Programme 2011/12 and Proposed Asset Disposal

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report by the Acting Director of Children’s Services served to update the Cabinet on the CYPD capital programme for 2011/12 and identified projects for approval from previously unallocated funding. The report also detailed CYPD properties which were no longer in operational use and set out proposals for their disposal.


Councillor Anne McLachlan, the Cabinet Member for Children’s Services & Lifelong Learning raised concerns about the unforeseen work to be carried out at Academies and the impact of this on the Council.  The Acting Director reported on the situation at Birkenhead Girls where the scheme of works was problematic and informed that he was currently in discussion with the contractors and the School.  It was hoped that savings could be made with the scheme that still had 14 months to run.  There were challenges ahead but he would monitor the situation carefully and report back to the Cabinet if it was necessary.




(1)  the additional schemes within the capital programme for 2011/12 be approved and that allocations to previously approved schemes be amended as set out in the report;


(2)  individual schemes be the subject of scheme and estimate reports, where applicable; and


(3)  the disposal of properties be progressed as outlined in the report.
