Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Following the Governing Body’s publication of a statutory notice and conclusion of the four-week statutory period for representations, during which no representations were received, a decision is sought to approve the permanent closure of Oak Hill C of E Primary School’s satellite site at Dumbleton.
The proposed closure will take effect on 25th March 2024, whereupon the council will return the property back to the landowner.
In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.
Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:
1. Approve the permanent closure of Oak Hill C of E Primary School’s satellite site at Dumbleton on 25th March 2024.
2. Delegate authority to the Assistant Director of Asset Management and Property Services to surrender its lease and return the site to the landowner.
