Reasons for the decision:


Capital allocation to support the works was approved as part of the 2023/24 Capital Programme by the Children’s and Young People’s Committee on 21 June 2023.


The works are required due to the condition and persistent leaking of rainwater into the building which is having a significant impact on the specialist education provision. The existing roof timbers are showing signs of “bowing” and structural repairs and strengthening to these timbers is required to alleviate further deterioration to the roof timbers and the roof finishes. The roof tiles are in poor condition leading to persistent on-going leaks and they require replacing.


The introduction of new roof insulation will give rise to an improvement in energy  efficiency, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of the building.


Alternative options considered:

Due to the roof tiles needing to be replaced on a like for like basis to negate any further structural works, no other options were suitable to be discussed.
