Email sent to Stockport’s Director of Finance 23 September 2009 19:16. I have not yet had a reply from him.

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 –

“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

From the Fir Tree Consultation with Governors

“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

How much has the outreach
work been costed at?

I look forward to hearing from you.
