Additional documents:


The Director of Children’s Services presented a report which provided a summary of the capital funding available under a number of local and national initiatives and programmes and set out a draft programme of works in 2009/10 for consideration by Cabinet. The report also provided an update on the progress of major schemes currently being undertaken and a summary of schemes completed during the 2008/09 financial year. Due to steps taken by central Government to kick start the economy a significant amount of capital funding had potentially been brought forward to this financial year, resulting in a larger than normal programme of work.


The Cabinet Member for Children’s Services and Lifelong Learning welcomed the report and the expenditure programmed for 2009/10.


Resolved –


(1) That the draft 2009/10 departmental Capital Programme be approved.


(2) That the various grant and local capital funding sources be noted.


(3) That individual schemes be the subject of further option reports and scheme and estimate reports where applicable.


(4) That approval be given to progress schemes at Stanton Road, Irby Primary and Greasby Infant Schools using the Early Years Quality and Access grant, as set out in paragraph 3.7 of the report.
