Scheme and estimate for replacement of existing private voluntary nursery mobile with a new extension to the school and associated works.
The Director of Children’s Services advised Cabinet that the DCSF had announced additional Early Years Capital Funding for the period April 2009 to March 2011, the grant being intended, but not exclusively, to support capital investment in the private, voluntary and independent (PVI) sector. The proposal to replace a poor quality Pre-School Unit located at Stanton Road Primary School with a new modular build unit was presented, detailing the costs and scope of the scheme. Cabinet was asked to consider and approve the proposal.
(1) the Scheme and Estimate, as presented, be accepted;
(2) the Director of Technical Services be authorised to obtain all necessary statutory approvals for the project;
(3) the Director of Technical Services be authorised to seek tenders for the project; and
(4) the Director of Children’s Services use his delegated powers to accept the lowest bone-fide tender and report his acceptance of the tender to Cabinet in due course in accordance with the Council’s Procurement Policy.
