Buildings Compliance and Condition Programme

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report on a proposed package of compliance and condition works following compliance audits and surveys carried out across the Council’s corporate buildings.  The report sought approval to release designated capital spend of £4.5m to carry out a programme of works over the next three years.  A list of the projects included in the Corporate Condition/Compliance Programme 2019/22 was attached to the report.


The report set out the allocation of the £4.5m budget against Condition Works and Health & Safety and Compliance work over three years.  It noted that the provisional package of works currently exceeded the available annual budget, and explained that the programme would be developed and refined over coming months and managed to ensure that expenditure was controlled within budget.  The programme and its budget were monitored on a monthly basis to ensure high priority works were implemented, the timing of other works was reviewed based on budget availability and that adequate contingencies were retained for unforeseen works. Any works not carried out in 2019/20 would be included in the programme for 2020/21.


Resolved –


(1)     That the release of designated Capital Programme funding of £4.5m to deliver a three year programme of compliance, condition and priority health and safety works to corporate buildings be approved;


(2)     That the Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services be authorised to enter into contracts as required to deliver the proposed works within the approved budget and procurement processes.
