The Proposal to Close Hendon Brook Short Stay School
On 16 January 2020, Cabinet agreed to the publication of a public notice to begin a representation period on the proposal to close Hendon Brook Short Stay School, Nelson, which would take effect from 31 August 2020. The formal consultation (or representation) period took place from 31 January to 28 February 2020.
As part of the process, a decision should now be taken about the proposal by Lancashire County Council. This decision should be taken within two months of the representation period ending.
This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C21 have been complied with.
This decision is urgent and cannot await the next meeting of Cabinet. The reason for this is that all formal meetings of the council, including Cabinet, have been cancelled for the foreseeable future and this decision has been deemed to be business critical by the relevant Executive Director. This decision is therefore being taken on behalf of Cabinet by the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Schools in accordance with the provisions of Standing Order C16(1).
