Decision:

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: Approve the registration with Ofsted under the Care Standards Act 2000 of the Council owned property at 48 London Road (currently under refurbishment) as a children’s home providing accommodation for up to 8 children, with accommodation and support delivered by staff recruited and employed by the council under an in-house management and staffing model. For the reasons set out in the report.
