Councillor I.T.E. Harvey
To consider a report on a proposed extension to the Fordbridge day centre, Ashford and make a recommendation to Council.
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
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.
