Further to Minute 110 above, the Cabinet considered a private report of the Director of Director of Partnerships and Performance which set out the commercially sensitive confidential matters relating to a budget increase for the Woodfield Schools relocation to the Woodlands School site.


As indicated in Minute 110 above, Councillor Akhtar, Chair of the Scrutiny Co-ordination Committee, having considered both the public and private report, agreed the need for urgency and therefore the decisions in relation to this matter are not subject to call in.

 1)  Approves a further sum for the delivery of the capital refurbishment works to enable the award of the main construction contract which will be financed from within existing Education capital resources. The total main construction contract value will be increased to the sum now indicated.


2)  Delegates authority to the Director of Finance and Resources, following consultation with the Director of Partnerships and Performance (or in his/her absence the Chief Executive), the Director of Law and Governance and the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, to undertake the necessary due diligence including approving any incidental and ancillary actions required to bring into legal effect the recommendation set out in Recommendation 1) above.
