York Conservative-led Council to invest £2.35 million in repairs at 20 York Schools

Conservative Cllr Stuart Rawlings, the City of York Council’s  Executive Member for Education, Children & Young People, approved a plan at last Tuesday’s Executive Decision Session that will see 20 schools share in the £2.35 million budget to invest in infrastructure repairs and improvements such as roof repairs, kitchen ventilation, and better heating systems.

At the meeting officers noted they had made conservative estimates of the government grants which make up part of the funding , but said that if the money does fall short of what is expected one of the schemes at the bottom of the priority list would possibly not be able to go ahead.

Cllr Rawlings praised officers for their thorough project funding and prioritisation efforts, and gave officers authority to proceed with the next project on the list - rewiring at Huntington School - if other projects come in under budget and leave money to spare.

The full list and breakdown of costs are as follows:
