Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Purpose:

This report sets out the proposals for the allocation of schools capital funding to address a further phase of high priority building condition repairs on Community, Voluntary Controlled and Maintained Schools in Lancashire.

 

The condition programme is funded by a grant from the Department for Education. Allocations are usually announced in April, and previous year's allocations indicate that approximately £14.000m should be received in  2024/25. In addition to this grant, there is an unallocated balance of previous year's Condition Led Programme funding, and it is proposed to utilise £4.000m leaving approximately £3.153m in reserve.

 

The programme, set out at Appendix 'A', has been developed to utilise this grant funding allocation. Once the amount is announced, the programme will be adjusted accordingly. 

 

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

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