Dear Mr Majothi

From the Harcourt Street Highlight report for period 15/3/06 – 14/05/20

“Aspirations continue to exceed budget provision and at this stage the scheme is undeliverable if the funding (or Brief) is not revisited.”

Highlight report for period 15/3/06 – 14/5/06

“Funding shortfall will lead to ultimate project failure if not addressed i.e., unable to enter into contract”. This was when the cost was circa £8.6 million – it is now circa £10 million.

From the Fir Tree Consultation with Governors 06/07/05

“There was concern from the governors that families in the Fir Tree area will have difficulty in getting to the proposed new site. The governors felt the outreach work would need to be increased as they felt parents from the school would not walk to the new facilities. The governors supports a new school but would wish the site to be in the Fir Tree community”

How much has the outreach work been costed at?

I look forward to hearing from you.
