    Proposed new extension to Fordbridge day centre

    Decision Maker: Cabinet

    Decision status: Recommendations Approved

    Is Key decision?: No

    Is subject to call in?: Yes


    To consider a proposal for an extension at the Fordbridge Day Centre, Ashford


    Cabinet considered a report on a proposed new extension to the Fordbridge Day Centre.


    The extension would increase the capacity of the dining room to seat 101 visitors and provide a flexible area for other activities such as classes, games or exercise to take place.


    Alternative options considered and rejected by the Cabinet:

    ·         Do nothing


    Resolved to

    1.    Recommend to Council a supplementary capital estimate of £130,000 for the proposed extension at the Fordbridge Centre, and its inclusion in the 2019/20 capital programme;


    2.    Approve the capital spend of £130,000 for the extension; and


    3.    Agree to proceed with Option 3 as set out in Appendix 1



    Reason for Decision

    The Centre is operating at full capacity and cannot currently accommodate additional visitors. The Centre has requested a ground floor extension in order that it can accommodate more visitors for lunch and to access the Centre facilities/activities.
