To seek approval for additional capital funds
to carry out identified remedial works to the culverts beneath all
three mills at Pleasley Vale Business Park
Executive considered the report of the Portfolio Holder – Economic Development which sought approval for additional capital funds to carry out identified works to the culverts at all three mills at Pleasley Vale Business Park. A contractor, detailed in the report, was also recommended to be appointed to carry out the works, subject to approval of the necessary budget.
Moved by Councillor Liz Smyth and seconded by Councillor Duncan McGregor
1) Executive approves the scheme to carry out the identified culvert remedial works at Pleasley Vale Business Park.
2) Executive recommends to Council that the scheme be added to the Capital Programme.
3) subject to the approval of the budget and the addition of the scheme to the Capital Programme, OnSite Central Ltd be appointed to carry out the identified culvert remedial works detailed in the report.
REASON FOR DECISION:
The remedial works were considered to be essential as they would bring the culverts back into a reasonable state of repair and reduce the need for further more costly works in the future.
OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED:
The option not to undertake the works was rejected as this would have risked cost increases if the identified defects were left to worsen with time, and the increased flood risk through additional silting would not have been dealt with.
