The Cabinet gave consideration to a report of the Interim Director of Economy and Skills, which provided the Cabinet with details of the progress of the refurbishment of Royton Town Hall and Library buildings.
The report presented a summary of the detailed wok carried out to date in bringing forward the project including:
· Assumed costs
· Additional surveys
· Desktop work to confirm the foundation of the design
An exhaustive value engineering exercise had been undertaken to drive down costs as much as possible without compromising the integrity of the project.
Option 1 – Do nothing.
Option 2 – Joint Venture/Private Partner
Option 3 – Increase prudential borrowing
Option 4 – De-prioritise other capital projects or allocate currently uncommitted resources.
Members welcomed the proposals stating that the refurbishment would preserve the historical Town Hall building allowing relocation of the library to the main building and create greater accessibility for members of the public.
RESOLVED – That the Cabinet would consider the commercially sensitive information contained at Item 10 of the agenda.
