the impact of Covid-19.
that this report constitutes a Scheme and Estimate (S&E) approval for the
implementation of the individual projects outlined in Section 7 of this report
such that each project can be commenced immediately, and contracts awarded for
that due to the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown, delays to the implementation of the
programme is anticipated. Officers will work with the affected schools to
ensure that all operational impacts are minimised. Where the delivery of
schemes becomes operationally unfeasible, earmarked funds will be ringfenced
for carry-forward to future financial years until the time when the delivery of
such schemes becomes feasible. This will ensure that no school loses out from
this funding opportunity due to Covid-19.

Enterprise and Skills (DRES) in consultation with the Director of Children’s
Services and in accordance with the Council’s scheme of delegation.
This decision is subject to call-in until 5pm - 11 June 2020
