The paper will also outline the existing pressures with the Capital Maintenance programme and consider options for requesting the Executive to approve the use of Basic Need to address these pressures.

(1) the plans for the use of Basic Need to add additional school places in 2015/16
(2) the proposed use of Basic Need capital to fund capital maintenance schools to 2018/19

Consultation process

The place planning team have attended school cluster meetings to share information about place planning pressures and to consult on options to address these. School Place Planning is a standing item on the agenda of meetings of the York Learning partnership Board which provides an opportunity to consult with headteachers, the Principal of York College and representatives of early years settings. The planning process for each building scheme will involve full public consultation. The capital asset board have been consulted and their advice sort on the development of these reports. Ward member briefings are planned to ensure that elected members have been briefed on the place planning pressures in their wards
