Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Service
The Sub Committee considered a Gateway 3 Issue report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services regarding the Windows Programme and Common Parts redecoration project on the Golden Lane Estate. The Director of Community and Children’s Services introduced the report and advised of a correction to the report, that detailed acoustic surveys would cost £21,500 rather than £21,000 as stated. The Deputy Chairman confirmed that no Costed Risk Provision was listed as not applicable as the project had started before the Costed Risk Provision system had been set up, and advised that this should be explained in reports rather than listing as not applicable.
In response to a question from a Member, the Director of Community and Children’s Services advised that around half of the estates was social housing, and that the leaseholder share of the project cost would be considered following the options appraisal. The Chairman commented that consultation with residents would be key and had to be done appropriately.
RESOLVED, that the Sub-Committee approve:
1. Approve the budget for the design team fees, including funding for; a Quantity Surveyor, Communications Consultant, planning fees and enhanced advisory fees, enabling works, access to ARUP drawings and additional detailed acoustic surveys;
2. Approve further staff costs.
