Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes


Lancashire County Council has a statutory duty to ensure that a primary or secondary school place is available for every child of statutory school age living in Lancashire who requests one. In August 2019, Cabinet agreed to provide additional places at both Unity College and Shuttleworth College to address this need, through an increase of 30 places to their Published Admission Number, providing a total of 150 additional permanent places at each school.


This report outlines a change to this proposal, due to issues that have arisen with the provision of these places at the Shuttleworth site within the agreed timescale The provision of all the required permanent places will now be at Unity College. 


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.



The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.
