Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I, Councillor Cammell, Lead Member for Children’s Services, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council Constitution do hereby approve: Approve additional budget costs to support the permanent expansion of Salford City Academy High School.
The Reasons are: Due to unforeseen essential utility diversions and the impact that this will have on the delivery of phase 2 works, the final anticipated balance will exceed the current approved budget.
Options considered and rejected were: None
Assessment of Risk: If the city council does not increase its secondary school provision to meet the projected demand, then the city council would not be fulfilling its statutory duty in relation to the provision of sufficient school places.
