Report of the Head of Participation

Additional documents:

Minutes:

          Decisions:

 

1.   That approval be granted for the development of childcare facilities on school sites with the terms and conditions to be agreed by the Head of Property and Regeneration;

 

2.   That the Head of Participation be granted delegated authority to authorise child-care developments on school sites and to report to Members on an annual basis.

 

 

Reason for Decisions:

 

To support the Governing Bodies of schools in supporting the request for childcare facilities to be developed on schools sites.  Thus also supporting the Local Authority in meeting the statutory duties placed on it in the Childcare Act 2006.  This will in turn support the Child Poverty agenda in enabling parents the time to enter training or employment opportunities, or to access employment or training within the childcare sector.

 

Implementation of Decisions:

 

The decisions will be implemented after the 3 day call in period.
