Southbank School Place Planning
Resolved: That the Executive agree to:
(i) Undertake further informal public consultation to examine all available options prior to undertaking formal public consultation on the options for the provision of school places in the Southbank area lasting four week;
(ii) Identify option (b) as the council’s current preferred option, for the purposes of that consultation;
(iii) Ask the Director of Children’s Services, Education and Skills to bring a report to a future meeting of the Executive describing the outcome of that consultation and making a recommendation for a proposal to be subject to statutory consultation.
